new painting } the eves and thilo

I finished this painting around ten days ago, and instead of photographing myself with it as I usually do with my finished paintings, I wanted to share that fun with a few of the special women in my life. Thanks to my sister Yasmine for thinking about asking her colleague photographer Thilo Mayer to take […]

the reincarnation of eve

I have been following Laura Bevan on Instagram for a while now. As I do with many artist friends I’ve ‘met’ on Instagram, I like a lot of her posts/artwork. But it’s her dolls I fell in love with. Because I’m always up for a collaboration, I asked her if she would create an Eve for me, […]

UK days } april 28 to may 8, 2016 } part II

This trip has been packed. For someone who has made it her mission this time to ‘chill’, I’ve done a lot, met new friends and caught up with old ones. This sojourn has, however, been a bit of a challenge, at moments even regretful…I don’t know why…well, I do but I won’t tell, for various reasons. Funny enough, […]

playing with the machina

Deena ‘Machina’ Qabazard and I have been planning a playdate for ages. This morning we finally got together for a morning of creativity, gossip and general antics. We sipped our tea and ate our oranges, almonds and dates like good girls and made these funky fascinators. Every human should be able to wear one of these […]

eve and colette (and lubna and yasmine)

I want to tell you the story of how I met Colette. I was having lunch with my dear friend Sarah Alhamad at Momo’s in London, back in September. It was my treat so when I gave the waiter my card he asked me if I was from Kuwait. I said yes. He then told me about a […]

uk days } the most wonderful trip

What a perfect little trip I took. All across the board, from finally visiting the Dennis Severs House, to successful shopping sprees, to a dear friend’s wedding. And even the pitfalls were to laugh about almost immediately. But alas with a most wonderful trip, comes a tremendous dip. I was feeling the anti-climax all day yesterday. […]

conversation around a napkin

As I was cleaning this morning I was listening to music from my iTunes library. After Alexi Murdoch’s Song For You ended, I heard my voice. I walked up to my computer to see what it was but the recording was untitled. Then I heard someone else’s voice: Simon’s. I had forgotten about these 14 minutes of our time […]

two women, two hopes

Because this week I’ve been immersed in all things Mai (even this journal is named after her), I’m going to include last night’s ‘The Hidden Light of Objects’ reading photos in this post.

UK days } part I } days one, two & the day before

Because I didn’t have time in the city, and when I went to Surrey there was no wi-fi, I could not update my blog on a regular basis. I’ve divided this series of posts into six parts: four parts covering my stay in the UK, a Traveling Tap post and a Stories of Eve post. […]

a rainy november day in junieh with david and hussein

This is long overdue. I have been meaning to write a post about my visit to my new friends David Habchy and Hussein Nakhal’s Junieh studio since November. I ‘met’ David via Instagram (you must check out his gallery here) and flew to Beirut in October mainly to meet him. I wanted to explore his […]

airplane timelines/UK days part five } beirut > london > kuwait

I decided to consolidate and ended up with a messy title, but it’s the only way I can do this right now and move on to other things. I’ve decided to sandwich the last of my UK days in between two Airplane Timeline entries. It makes more sense this way. Bon appetit! Oh and I’ve decided that the […]
