I am an Iraqi born artist, resides in VA since 2017. Armed with MA in English literature, I served the United Nations for many years trying to help communities in need. Currently I work in home/furniture design. My passion has always been with "Art and Culture”. I am currently a student at Rhode Island School of Design / RISD Continuing Education. I have a lot of galleries participations in VA and DC area. I am passionate towards supporting my community via art. Art for me is the language that people could understand without speaking.
I love painting and drawing. I am in love with bright colours, I use oil colours a lot to generate my colours preference. I capture moments to paint and remember. There is a story behind every painting I do, each artwork presents a variety of messages from hope, love and happiness. I also love drawing using black charcoal pencils; every aspect around me from home, nature, culture gives me the inspiration I need.
