Who are you?
An artist free from borders, loving beauty, spontaneous, strong and fragile at the same time.
Who are your favorite artists?
Klimt has always fascinated and inspired me, then came Mucha and Gaudi which I consider as an artist, not only an architect.
What themes does your art focus on?
Woman, woman, woman. Even if I treat important other topics, I express them through feminine figures.
What is your hallmark as an artist?
Passion in my believes, getting inspired by unexcepted things.
What music or other audio do you listen to while you work?
When did you decide that art was part of you and your life?
The first to have discovered my talents are my parents, then my mother bought me a box of paint. It worked. Then I was entrusted to one of the most famous woman artist in Saoudi Arabia Mounira Almousily at the age of 13 and I took a few courses with her. Since then, Art became a part of me, of my mind and soul.
Where do you work on your artwork?
In my art studio lateley, before it was complicated painting in many parts of the house, now, I just enjoy working.
Where would you like to see your artworks exhibited?
I hope in the most important galleries and museums all over the world. But I hope that my work can be seen in the street, on buildings, in the net, and interact with a wide range of people.
Why do you make art?
For love and with love.
Why do you think art is important in our society?
Art is the expression of the artist vision, it reflects who he is, what he sees, what he feels and express about himself, others, environment, planet and so on. It’s a capture of his soul and mind in the society in a very specific moment. Art is the voice and expression of the Artist, a kind of a testimony on the era. The Artist is an historian in a certain manner.
