Noormah Jamal is a Lahore/Peshawar based Visual Artist. She did her Bachelors from The National College of Arts in 2016, majoring in Mughal Miniature painting and minoring in Printmaking. Where, she graduated with honours. Though trained in the pure Mughal technique, she does not consider herself as a Miniature artist but lets her creative process flow through any medium she sees fit, being an avid believer of the era of visual artists and not specialised ones.

She has also had her work printed in various Magazines and Publications.
Noormah is currently an artist in residence at VASL Artists association for the 11th Taaza Tareen residency.
