Today, I get to introduce you to another amazing Her Blaze artist. This week, we draw your attention to Lakhima Shankar Khan.
Lakhima describes herself as an activist and an artist with a soul. She considers herself a hobby artist and calls her art style “fluid”.
At times, she’s known to use liner pens and watercolors, especially when producing landscape pieces. She also shared that she is proudly part of the LGBTQIA+ community.
As with many of our artists, she is well-rounded and very talented and we are so happy to have her as part of the Her Blaze family.
When asked what inspires her as an artist, Lakhima stated, “I have always believed there is never a single source of inspiration, because inspirations are usually very multidimensional. So mine has a trigger point, anything that calms my mind, makes me wonder why, brings out my emotions or leaves me agitated becomes my inspiration.”
In other words, emotional reactions inspire creativity.
As Will Smith said, “human beings are not creatures of logic; we are creatures of emotion. And we do not care what’s true. We care how it feels.”
That same emotion he’s referring to is what sparks those most incredibly unique art pieces produced by Lakhima.
The above piece is one of her art pieces she submitted to Her Blaze and calls it “one of my best works”.
You can see this piece, along with more examples of Lakhima’s art on her Instagram page.
One of my favorite pieces is one she created for friendship day.
She shared “Friendship is messy. Hard. Infuriating. Awesome. Fragile. Durable. Impossible. Worth it. Always worth it.”

I love her use of colors and am so intrigued by how she depicted the three women with no faces. It’s almost as if she created a piece that resonates with everyone.
This is an artist that I adore. I adore her art as well as her tenacity.
She used the pandemic to inspire her to become the person she wanted to be. She embraced the new world we all live in.
She is definitely our kind of people. There is nothing more admirable than seeing a person take the hardships life throws their way and makes them something to celebrate.
Lakhima used the pandemic as time to regroup. She used it as time to develop into the person she knew she was.
And we are grateful that she brought us along for the most amazing transition.
