BIOGRAPHY

As a self-taught artist, Nada has been enchanted by art since childhood but she effectively started to focus on art since 2017. Living in Dubai, Nada indulges in creating something new every time she uses the brush. Inspired by nature, Nada uses oil and acrylic paint focusing mainly on nature elements. This reflects her interest in sharing creations with others in its most organic form, and showing her creativity.

Nada has been on TV channels such as Sky News Arabia, Al Dhafra and Fujairah and newspapers such as Khaleej Times, Gulf Today, and Emarat Al Youm to raise the awareness of art in UAE. She firmly believes in sharing joy, happiness, and positivity with others specially those who are in need. For this, she supports several exhibitions for children with special needs and donates artwork to their centers to encourage artistic fundamentals in young children.

Nada became a member at Dubai Business Women Council in collaboration with Dubai Chamber in September 2021.

For her recognition and accreditation of her talent in UAE, Nada received the long-term cultural visa and became a holder of the UAE Golden Visa.

STATEMENT

I discuss positive emotions, nature in the serenity, serenity in nature and getting my vision out on the canvas. My work is “Art inspired by nature”.

Nature is the greatest inspiration to see beauty in the world, and draw attention to some of the most pressing matters in human and environmental affairs. With art as a lens, we can learn to change the world. I use oil paint and acrylic paint to create my artworks. We can see so much art in nature if we take the time to look. The Earth has provided us with so much beauty. The colors that surround us, the plants, flowers, bodies of water, and creatures. Everything we see is art if you can appreciate it. This is truly a look into our everyday lives and love for nature.

I always choose vibrant colors and deep warmth for my artworks because the world is a colorful place and I have a message behind that, to spread the happiness and positivity once people look at my paintings.

Inspired by nature and the energy that connects all things, I like to surround myself with color because it lifts my spirit and makes me happy. I know that color can affect one’s mood and I know I feel good when I look at color. I hope my paintings can help create a little joy in people’s lives when they view them.
