The Magic of Painting...

Ever since I was a little kid I remember walking around with colored pencils in my hands. Drawing my own universe with my parents and siblings in it. My father is an art painter and my mother is a fashion designer and that is why I always believed art is in my DNA.

Even though I was raised during war in Iraq, my drawings had all the bright colors in them. Happy faces and a safe haven. I left Iraq when I was 4 years old and I found a new home in the Netherlands. My parents raised me with the thought that art is everywhere. The way I dress up, the way I wear my make-up and even the way I write a Christmas card in Arabic to my family in Baghdad. 


“It is whenever I’m painting I forget about the place that is called earth. Painting heals my soul.”
