I'm a self-taught artist growing up, and am currently in more formal training of art and design as I go into my 4th year of my Fine Arts bachelor's degree at the University of Texas at Austin. I specialize in the study of human figures, self-portraiture, landscape, and architecture.
I work within the realm of High/Fine Arts and classicalism. My main mediums are oil paint, lithography printmaking, and gold leaf.
I reference my work through a photographic process where I’ll piece original images together to create a familiar scene with a more whimsical view.
The beginnings of my work tailored to cultural awareness and reconnecting back to my Libyan roots. There was a lacking of representation that I craved from the Fine Arts world so I take iconic imagery of the Renaissance era and apply it to my work with my culture at the forefront. I’m currently in the process of branching out my ideas to become multi-cultural/faceted.
