My name is Ghadah Alkandari. I’m a Kuwaiti artist and aspiring blogger. I never realized until I started a blog in April 2009 that I am also a diarist and exhibitionist. To me, my blog is my own private reality show. It’s been a platform for me to share my thoughts and feelings with anyone willing to stop by and listen. In a country where thinkers and artists are sparse, I like to think that there are a few people out there who just might get me.
Professionally, I’ve been exhibiting and selling my work both nationally and internationally. I am also insisting on being a children’s book writer and illustrator. Although in the past I’d illustrated a handful of children’s books for other writers/institutions, there has been one book that I started years ago. My goal is to finish this book. And I probably will one day.
