I was always fascinated by impressionism. The quick strong brushstrokes which express the artist's emotions about what he sees.
I was born in Egypt Cairo, and starting painting when I was very young. Fortunately my cousin was an artist, who helped me to see and paint from life. I learned much from drawing statues in the Ancient Egyptian museum, but watercolor and oil were always my favorites for painting everyday subjects.
As I found the need to support my self and my art, I studied and worked as Computer programing. At the same time I joined fine arts evening school. Working with Egypt Air gave me opportunities to travel and visit museums in Europe.
I was fortunate again when immigrated to USA, and worked for American Airlines as computer programmer in Texas. I joined all artist associations which I can reach, and attended every available art workshops.
I completed the "North Light Art School" in October 1991, and "International Corresponding Schools - Master Art" in January 1994.
I enjoy direct painting from life. I paint landscapes at parks which have lakes on sunny days, people in figure painting groups. My studio is still small which capable only for still life.
As airline employee I traveled and spent much time in museums, here in the States and in Europe. Work of Masters inspired me to capture the essences of what I see, and form them in the quick strong brushstrokes. I hope you enjoy my art works.
