I started out as a self-trained artist in 2006, painting in my family's garage as a result of a college art history project. I remember being out there in the cold of February, incessantly experimenting with colour and texture; I was obsessed. Not long after, I was offered a solo exhibition through the New Westminster Arts Council and as a result, decided to seriously pursue painting. I enrolled in various art courses and began to exhibit my work.
Although abstract, each painting is autobiographical and stems from my own experiences, observations and imaginings. After an extended period traveling in Europe and North Africa, I am currently based in Paris, France and plan to return to Egypt in September to paint murals in Cairo. The spontaneity, freedom, and love of my nomadic lifestyle is reflected in the nature of my current artwork.
Apart from painting and exhibiting, I teach creative workshops to groups of all ages and am exploring projects in poetry, participatory installation, and video. My work can be found in private and corporate collections as well as the homes of friends, family and strangers all over the world.
