About Razia Iqbal
Since 2004, I have been the BBC's arts correspondent, mainly working on television news. But I've been involved with the arts on and off since 1994, when I started making programmes for BBC Radio 4, and later as the arts correspondent on BBC World Service and Radio 4.
This is what I love about the arts: At their best, artists deal with the biggest issues going - life, death and love.
Forget politics, money and business, if you want the greatest rewards and riches, the arts are where it's at.
Below, you'll find a sample of my TV reports from the last couple of years.
Let me know what you think.
