She first started painting at age 13. During the 51 days Israeli military assault on Gaza in 2014. Forced to stay inside for her own safety, she felt a compelling need to release all of her fear, anxiety and sheer terror. She started painting with art supplies from her school, basic watercolour on paper. This opened up a world of self- expression for her. She has now produced over 300 paintings, and exhibited her art all around the world.
