I grew up as a little dreamer, I loved fairytales and how each illustrator gave the same fairytale a different feel. It was clear to me that an artist had the power to direct us to the gates of their world; all we had to do is explore and build upon that.

I never lost my passion and drive to pursue my dream as an artist and continue to transform all the negative experiences as a fuel to practice and improve my skills as an artist on a daily bases.

I am blessed by the gift of exploring different cultures and visiting many countries to do so as often as possible. Traveling gives me the opportunity to enhance my artwork with different flavors, visiting museums, parks and looking at various architectural landscapes enriched my work in many ways.


I remember my first art set of oil pastels and watercolors accompanied by an easel, that moment I discovered my love of art supplies and the magical feeling you get when you play with different mediums.

Art was not my main occupation rather just a hobby, until the moment I saw my little one’s face and I thought to myself If I am going to tell her “Follow your heart” I better do the same, and so I started focusing on honing my skills by continuing my education and successfully completing my Bachelor Degree in Media Arts and Animation and currently pursuing a Masters in Fine Arts specializing in Illustration.
