BenchLab Talented Instructor: Nadia Shaikh of @nadieshaikh. You’ll be learning from a full-time creative artist and teacher juggling between four fields of creative work -- writing, art, music and teaching. For all her life she has always had a passion for art and having to live with a father who is a designer made it easier for her to develop her skills. About a year ago, she had made herself officially public in the art scene and her work has been exponentially garnering attention. Since then, Nadia has been doing logos for private clients and personalized orders from customers in Brunei, Singapore and Malaysia.
