Yink & Yanc

two panels, 20×30 cm each

These are Yink and Yanc. They are my contribution to a charity exhibition spearheaded by Kuwaiti artist Thuraya Al-Baghsami, coordinator of Ghadeer Gallery, and Dr. Labeeba Tameem, a member of the Hayat Committee for Cancer Patients. People, both locally and abroad, of all walks of life, of all ages, have been given a set of 20x30cm canvases, paints and brushes to create little works of art. Hence the exhibition title Small Painting in a Great Heart. The exhibition is tentatively scheduled for the end of January 2010. Please contact Ms. Al-Baghsami ( for any additional details. As always, I will let you know exact dates and times closer to the show.

All profits will go to cancer patients in Kuwait.

Jana & Iber Complete and Not

jioneWell, this is it. I am very happy with it. I decided to keep Jana the way she is, unfinished, incomplete. The painting will be part of an exhibition/auction benefiting the Animal Friends League of Kuwait/K’s Path. Works will be displayed at the Dar Al-Funoon Gallery for two days, and the auction will take place on the third day. I will post details closer to the actual date, which will be in February 2010. I’m very excited. Read More

What’s up your skirt?


up and down her skirt

can i look up your skirt please?

Although cooling, the skirt must be one of the most impractical items of clothing ever. I love to wear skirts, they’re so flowy and feminine, sexy and sweet. But very impractical.


Janiber: it’s just as much about the dress as it is about the dog


Iber is black. He looks two dimensional but he's not done yet. The painting is now in what I call its 'ugly phase'. We all go through it so why not a painting?


Closer up to that dress which I love.



Closer still. If not for the other photos, I'd imagine that it's hard to tell what this is.




jackonejacktwoThis is why it’s a better idea to carve the pumpkin a whole week before Halloween.

Janiber Day 3


Jana is happy with the way she looks in this painting, like she's about to commit murder (i'd like to think figuratively)

Jana & the Giant Schnauzer Iber

iberpaintingI started a painting today. I’m painting it specially for an auction which is to take place mid-February at the Dar Al-Funoon Gallery in Sharq. More about this in future posts. Because the auction will benefit a certain animal shelter, I felt that it was befitting to paint a portrait of two of my favorite animals: Jana and Iber. Read More

Palestinian Cultural Center Meeting Notes 10.24.09


I forgot to take my brown planning book with me to the PCC meeting yesterday. A dear friend of mine kindly gave me his arsenal of stationary, including this mango yellow printing paper. For added affect, I folded up my ‘notes’ and put them in the back pocket of my jeans. I love things to look like they have a story, even if that story is staged.


This is the photograph you asked for. I am Mara.

'This is the photograph you asked for. I am Mara. I saw a resemblance...I will be her for Halloween.'-Miti Aiello

A little over a month ago I decided that I wanted to create these postcards and send them out to my friends. I only got round to mailing them about a week ago. The first, to my blogsister Miti Aiello, arrived a few days ago. My mouth just dropped when I found this in my e-mailbox this morning.


invisible medicine ballI had a pretty taxing week, straight off the heels of a few shitty months. It feels like the wind has been blown out of me and replaced with endorphins. Pain is great, if only to make what comes after it much more pleasurable.


gigs 1 and 2

In 2006, I had this idea for an anonymous magazine, giving the writer/artist/photographer not just the freedom to display uncensored work, but the opportunity to be whoever they choose to be. The concept was to go all out, no holds barred. I e-mailed, messaged and called my most opinionated/creative friends and requested (demanded really) submissions. Read More

Plans For an Exhibition

pccnotesoct17This page is taken from my brown planning book. I bought the actual sketchbook in New York, and it just sort of became my planning book, because I have SO many books that I use contemporaneously. For more pages like this, gently click on this phrase: shubaik lubaik, and it will take you there.

Adult Playground


get off the swing, it's my turn now

get off the swing, it's my turn now

I need an adult playground. And not the kinky type in a fantasy world of double entendres. I mean a real playground for adults. With seesaws and slides, and fighting over swings. Where I push you and then you push me. Where I have to be careful to slowly get off the seesaw lest I hurt you. An adult playground with an appropriately sized sandbox where we can build imaginary homes and defend them against the sandcastle kickers. I want to run, I want to push and I want to get sick on the centrifuge. I just want an adult playground.

Evolution of a Name

greenbullets38If you’ve visited my original site, you may have seen this very crude little video (yes, I’m crude and proud of it) I made on powerpoint. Because I’m slowly transferring my posts, I felt like doing this one today. I haven’t upgraded my blog to directly upload videos here so bear with me as you’re transported to my other blog to visit Ina and her green bullets. Will upgrade soon though, just need to fix some other things here. Read More
