The works I present illuminate the past of places that I have known a long time and which to me are as precious vessels on the Mediterranean coast; my works are like songs of joy or love letters to these places.

When I draw the city of Tartous, I draw inspiration from a world of intertwined elements: where water, humidity, wetness and light mingle with architecture and history; where the solid strength of the city’s walls which have withstood the test of time still stand to this day; where the reflections in the water are still the same as they have always been.
My work becomes like singing in mystery and self, so that it develops and thrives outside its uniform content.
