Artist Bio: Zakiah Sayeed Ali MD. (retd.)

I have been a resident of Quincy IL since 1978. I am a retired physician, and have two children who live here, and I have four grandsons.

My favorite activities are Writing, Reading, Photography and Gardening. I have written a couple of books that were self published, and are available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I love to read , and belong to a book club in town.
In the last five years, I have started painting thanks to wonderful teachers at the Quincy Artists Guild. Now, it seems like my favorite thing to do is to Paint.
I truly enjoy doing water color and have done some acrylic paintings. When I see a good photo somewhere, like in a magazine or calendar or Newspaper, I take a photo and save it. I have painted these photos over the years. Besides painting flowers and trees, I also like to paint scenes from India and other countries.

My friends are surprised that I paint every day. I DO paint daily, every night for about an hour to an hour and half. I have found that this habit is addictive, therapeutic and meditative in my opinion.
