The magnificent world we live in inspires me to capture moments of magic and colour in my paintings.
I am a self taught artist and attended my first art class in Damascus. This was mostly pencil drawing of “Busts” I loved it but the Arabic was challenging!
Before I left Syria I was painting in pastel as recommended by a tutor as it is so versatile and mistakes easily rectified.
I returned to live in the UK with my husband and children in 2012
Since I have been living in Yorkshire I have been very active attending different art groups which have encouraged and enriched my art enthusiasm.
I like to start off with a subject in mind and let the painting evolve into different avenues!
I work in mixed media, but for portraits I do have a preference for pastel
I am excited about the future, and wonder where the next steps will take me on my art journey
