About this pro

I’m an artist by nature even though I’ve graduated from nursing school. However, my passion about art was always living in my shadow. I’ve been painting professionally since 2013. I exhibited at local art galleries like Art Works of Eagan multiple times as well as I had my own private exhibition. I won the first place for my art work Eternity in 2019. I do enjoy connecting and working with people in all ages. I do believe that everyone is an artist on their own way, I like to challenge myself to unlock the little artist inside each of my students  and get them to know each other.  

I do teach from painting, step by step drawing, to cartoon drawing and calligraphy in both languages English and Arabic. I do enjoy working with all ages and abilities as I’ve never forgotten that I’m a nurse at the first place. 

I do enjoy working with people from all ages. I love seeing their progress over time as much as I love observing their eyes sparkling while admiring their own creations.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to have a conversation with my student over the phone first to learn more about their interest and expectations. 

Usually I do purchase supplies needed for the class. However, if the student have their own supplies, I will be willing to work with what they have. 

Class must be at least 1 hour long, or it may range between 1-3 hours.

I would prefer to meet the student at a public workshop first. Michael is my favorite. 

Usually I do give the student; especially the beginners; brief introduction about materials, techniques, and color theory; but they will off to work on their own immediately. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

In terms of art and calligraphy, I’m a self-taught. 

I’ve been painting and writing almost forever. My work was featured at few art shows and galleries locally. I do use mostly acrylic in my paintings, but also, I love experimenting new materials and different mediums to create something unique.
