I wanted to experiment with unfamiliar shapes while further exploring my curiosity about colors and their relationship with each other. But also, it was a reaction to a book I had just finished: Resistance: […]

This painting started with the eponymous ice-cream and ladybug. I was babysitting my nephew Khaldoun, had three empty canvases prepped for painting and thought: why not let him play a little?

new painting } d’s message in her hand

I just got back from London. There, I almost met a man. This man presented me with a beautiful face and an online personality so compatible with mine. And I filled in the rest to create a new muse for myself. He has no idea how much he has inspired me to paint like a curious child […]
