Elizabeth Groth is a Texan artist & educator in North Acton, London.
My name is Rabia shahzadi I am a visual artist lives and works in London. Text is the main object of my visuals because the text is considered the most personal language of any human being, through this unreadable text, I usually describe my personal biography and the truths which one cannot express in a loud voice or which are not acceptable for the society. My work is an amalgamation of text typography and historical figures of the traditional miniature painting of the sub-continent.
The combination of text, pop colours and historical figures is a visual appearance of my thoughts about the significance of the history of sub-continent miniature art in past and today, besides this, I want to leave the representation of colouration and compositions of the visuals open for viewers that one may symbolize its many perspectives.
I was always fascinated by the vibrancy and intensity of the colours in glass and the way it comes to life when exposed to light, stained glass windows in churches or sun catchers and I tried to duplicate those effects in my digital work, blending them with my view of the world – the lines and connections between nature and people. A few years ago I started experimenting with painting on glass.
Being a self-taught artist gives me pleasure and freedom to find my own style while expressing myself with mediums I choose to work with. My work evolves through my own personal experience finding an inspiration in nature, folklore, myths and legends. I love to explore unique colours, movement, energy, texture, emotions and music with every new work.

We believe dance can be used as a tool to positively change people’s minds and opinions about each other and to become united within the dance culture. Dance itself is a universal language that everybody understands and can relate too, it removes all barriers between individuals and what they want to communicate, It illustrates the development of human culture. Society Dance Academy firmly believes that if we focus on developing the young generation, creatively and socially, it will have an impact on them and others, for a better future.
Dance creates experiences for young people that will allow them to participate in a range of dance forms and styles. As well as providing them with the experience of performing, confidence and opportunities for leadership roles.
Our vision for our students is to provide them with the highest training and give them opportunities to reach their goals by also inspiring them to carry this movement forward into the future, allowing them to become the next generation of Mentors/dancers, choreographers and teachers that continue to create society with dance. We strive to bring out their creativity and teach them to express themselves through movement, but most importantly we want all students to enjoy this experience.
