Born 1963 in Amman, Jordan,

Living since 1984 in Vienna Austria

1987 Received my Bachelor of Art from Webster University, Vienna.

1989 started working professionally in the field of silk screen printing in this period acquired my first knowledge with graphic design and Typography.

1994 I found the passion for restoring old antique wood sculpture and furniture. Through this work I learned many techniques in this field. Autodidact I learned wood curving, calligraphy and painting. Qualified friends in this field made this effort much easier for me. Through the years I was appreciating art in all its forms.

With time I am trying to make the Arabic calligraphy or the Arabic signs understandable and acceptable for Arabic and a non Arabic viewer.

My artworks depict Arabic letters, word fragments, complete words or mottos combined with ornamental or geometric monograms, lines and symbols.

In warm desert tones, lines become letters and geometric figures mysterious arrangements that transport the beholder into a dream world. No prior knowledge of the Arabic alphabet or script is needed to dream, or for the oriental motifs to work their magic.  

2008 started running the Rearte gallery as a non profit private initiative which was launched in order to give a chance for known and unknown artist to present themselves and there Work in an exclusive and representative atmosphere.
