About The Artist

As a child, I played on the Persian carpet in our living room. I spent my time jumping among the shapes and colors,imagining among them hidden letters and animals. I would tip toe to avoid the imaginary snakes and carefully collect colorful gems.To this day, fabrics & textures captivate me. I am intrigued by patterns: the infinite waysof combining shapes and colors,the surprises and secrets that can beweaved among them. I express myself through textures & colors, I inscribe thesecrets of my heart on thecanvas.For me, Nature symbolizes freedom. It is pure from criticism & reproach,it accepts us with all our colors and shades &The dynamic symbolism of Nature gives me alanguage for expressing myself and my experiences.Technically, I use acrylic colors & Ilove to expose the base substrate in its raw form, the wood is part of my color palette, similar to Aboriginal painting techniques.

About The Artwork

Life is a delicate balance in relationships. The world is a network of endless connections. Even when not visible to the naked eye, we create these connections to survive. Although every entity has a life of its own, together they form an ecosystem that thrives and cultivate a world greater than the sum of its parts.
