I created “Fever” and “Lagrimas” last week in response to a set of emotions I was feeling at the time. We all have our days, and sometimes we are so visceral and aware. Life feels more intense in those moments, good or bad. These pieces turned out exactly how I wanted and I didn’t get a chance to hold on to them for that long.

A new resident in Reem Island contacted me after finding my pieces on my Facebook page. She purchased them to be center pieces in her dining room and I am truly flattered. She said that she was looking for art for her home for months and finally settled on mine. What an honor!

I love when my art speaks to people and they get excited enough to bring it home. But I’m even more excited when it is my abstract art that people decide to own. I started doing abstract art relatively recently and wasn’t sure how people would respond to it. I created it truly because it made me feel good.

The best is yet to come!

Happy Ramadan! + “Desert Sky” Painting

It’s that time of the year again! Ramadan is upon us and observant Muslims are fasting all over the world. I spent the last few days painting as much as I can, in time for my summer sale. I decided to paint some more representational art as I close out the month.

I’ve been interested in exploring palm trees and beach umbrellas, but just briefly. My real passion right now continues to be abstract art, and I have to make time for myself to create it without being distracted with my cute camels and such!

Below is one of the last paintings I completed and features a vibrant abstract sky with a desert theme. Of course, inspired by my time in Abu Dhabi, UAE. I will be posting more of my art to come!

P.S. I’ve been contemplating doing a 100 abstract paintings in 100 days challenge. I just have so much I want to experiment with, new materials, new color schemes, and new techniques. Wonder how it would go!
