I started painting ever since I can remember. It was an innate knowing and an eventual act of being that became my pure essence. I am mostly self taught, and have created my own language with color and movements, yet I have taken part in various art classes and courses and workshops along the years.
In 2001, I met the master, Wajih Nahle, who guided and supported me and taught me how to become an artist. Each minute with the master was transformational and I was lucky to experience a number of workshops and guided classes with him in his studio in lebanon and abroad. I later participated in exhibitions and workshops in Lebanon, UAE, Middle East and Europe.
My journey with committed painting started in 2001 then went through phases of awakenings and observations, yet recently it has become my life calling and top commitment.
As I have started exploring my inner journey and walking the path of light, I have integrated Art into the healing modalities that I practice which was a key to opening the infinite vaults of inspiration, creativity and evolvement.
It is once said “What is art but a way of seeing”, and I say what is life but a way of Art?!
I invite you to awaken the sleeping child inside of you, celebrate life with color and joy, and manifest the energy of universal creation.
