Suliman studied art in Pakistan before being returned to Kandahar by her family. After her father was injured in a suspected Taliban attack, the family moved to Mumbai, India and she began studies at the Sir J.J. School of Art.

In May 2015, Suliman's work was the focus of a solo exhibition at the Art Represent gallery in Bethnal Green, London. The show, entitled 'Beyond the Veil: A Decontextualization'. saw the installation of a number of burqas, each inscribed with the wishes and aspirations of Afghan citizens in a traditional form of calligraphy.
