Biography
   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.
