Shamilla Aasha is a practicing artist and teacher of art and design living in Bulawayo Zimbabwe. She obtained a Diploma in Textile Design from the Bulawayo School of Art and Design in 2000. Traditionally a mixed media painter, Shamilla now leans towards textile art, in the form of soft sculptures wall-hangings made from found objects.
