2012-Arabe- Aged 19

After several months of waiting to come home to my canvas I have finally painted something. During my wait I was inspired to paint a nude from every continent and every side of a continent. This woman personifies the Middle East and she is the first in the series. Hopefully I will be able to finish the last five in time for school this January.

I maintain the title in French.

2012-The Thinking Persian-Aged 19

For no particular reason I decided to go back to Orientalism.

The Thinking Persian, 2012

FUN FACTS

  • As a child I thought the nose was an unsightly thing to put on someone’s face so I drew portraits without them.
  • Before I was born my mother always dreamed of a house full of paintings.  Then I came to do that for her.
  • For a moment, I wanted to become a forensic artist as a kid. Too many crime shows on TV.
  • I am officially a Ravenclaw.
