Throughout my life I have believed in the power of art as a transformative medium, in all its’ many forms, from urban art to sculpture and everything between. For the last 20 years I have been fortunate enough to work both as a professional artist and a teacher, and have seen this belief become a reality both for my students and for myself. It is this self-discovery and personal growth through art that is at the heart of my work at Mawaheb.
The goal for me at Mawaheb is to release in all our students their creative potential and with that, the self confidence that many lack, but all deserve to feel. Through our work in the sculpture studio, I take students through an holistic, creative journey. The process is fundamental to the expression of their talents and ownership of their work. It starts with research and follows through to design, fabrication and completion. All these stages need concentration, attention to detail as well as physical dexterity and skill. Our students never fail to inspire me with the tenacity and dedication with which they embrace their own creative journey.
Creativity lies within all of us and the love for my work at Mawaheb comes from the richness of our students inherent, unique abilities. Art isn’t just about a lesson it is all around us and inside us, whoever we are, wherever we come from. Part of my job is to provide the journey that leads from a private inner vision to a shared piece of art, one which our students will be proud of and one which will be admired by all those who see it.
