Lives in

Pratt, MFA

abstract, landscape



Most of the time, my inspiration draws from nature itself and I am inclined to use lines and simple forms. My recent works have focused on landscapes. The places where I used to live before Dubai were all covered by high buildings, as are many neighborhoods in the UAE.  When I immerse myself in nature and subjects from the natural world, I feel less crowded. I find myself both stimulated and moved by natural elements in this desert location. The sea, sky, sun, moon, desert, birds, wind and rare rains, have an incredibly strong presence and infuse themselves into my art. Even though I know how immense nature is, I recognize and appreciate it so deeply again here that I want to express these moments that nature has touched me and share it through my art pieces with viewers.
