Even as a child, I have always dreamt of becoming an artist. I studied at the Art Institute and the Academy of Fine Arts in Baghdad for eight years. There, I learned painting, graphics, collage, and mosaic from competent and well-talented teachers. My father is a well-known artist in Iraq from whom I also acquired much experience in arts and painting. I grew up with the smell of oil paint, and this smell evokes positive memories which are always dear to me, and I value them so much. Basically, I majorly specialize in working with oil and acrylic. My paintings are colorful and often abstract expressionist art.
