I observe themes of emotional close connections and divisions as well as my deepening sense of time and history. I feed these images elements generated from emotions, daydreams, and imagination. These themes are inspired by my heritage in Baghdad, Iraq and also by being a North Carolinian for the past thirty plus years.

I create a surreal atmospheres that interpret my narrative subjects and express my connections with life.  I use dry brush technique when I paint in Acrylic or in oil. This method works when the brush has a very little medium mixed with the colors applied on the surfaces.  This will produce a transparent and a hazy image which helps my subjects to have a soft and dreamy imagery. 

The fruit of this art is to be shared with the viewer as a visual and emotional connection.
