Artist’s Statement


Art is part of my life and who i am. I have been involved with arts since i was 9 years old and my first drawing was a winner amongst the group in my age. I love nature and most of my inspirations comes from nature and the beauty that nature offers. I learned my colors from nature and try to learn every time i look at the beauty that nature offers me. I started from realism and went on to do some abstract work which latter i loved doing. My abstract work is inspired by my spirituality and inner feelings about my religion and believe. I love to capture emotions of people in my portrait paintings and try to be as real as possible. Movement and gestures are very important to me and I learned these from the best instructors from the Academy of Art University San Francisco where I got my Masters degree in figurative Painting. Currently I am trying to find a teaching job in my field which is drawing and painting.

Art is universal and can be magical because everyone can look at a piece of art and enjoy it and get inspired. I like my work to be the same and inspire the viewers and transform them into a happy state. The same way that we look at nature and get inspired, art should be the same. I love to share my paintings with the public so that make them happy and get feed back on my work and improve. Learning is a never ending task and I like to learn from others and get inspired by their work. Today more than ever we need Art in our lives because life has its share of difficulties and bad moments, but art will take all that away and make a person forget all their worries and life’s difficulties.

I hope that my work would be inspirational to all the people that look at them specially our youth who need to get inspired by us. Art is fun and magical and it should be displayed everywhere in our lives. One could never get enough of artwork, not only art is beautiful, but also lefts our spirit up and gets us going in life.
