Dreaming of Spring, acrylic, 30×40 cm, 2022.
I was born in Beirut, Lebanon, during the height of the civil war. Having immigrated to the U.S. and built a successful career in the corporate world, I realized that a dormant creative energy wanted to flow through my brush. Painting became an outlet for my deepest emotions and provided a blissful source for tremendous joy through uninhibited expression; becoming a channel for me to experience elements of childhood playfulness and abandon that the war I was born into had robbed me of.
I enjoy the use of vivid colors and bold textures in my paintings and favor a creative process where the concepts of my paintings evolve as they are being created. This fluid approach to painting allows for a dialogue between the artist and the art itself and the embrace of serendipity in expression.
