Perhaps I am the sole artist to draw with ink

About the Artist

Artist and poet Laila Al Daher graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Lebanon in 1989 then studied interior design in the US in 2003. She is a member of the Emirates Fine Arts Society, the International Arts Center, and the Arab-Swiss Forum.

Laila Al Daher is a Lebanese painter. She was born in Tyre. She grew up in Beirut and then moved to the UAE.

Laila: The start line should be from the classical school and artists should be engaged in arts for 10 years to get the feelings of colors. Then I embraced the impressionist style of painting.

Perseverance and consistence are the underlying factors which led Leila to go to Private Art as labeled in the US, and eventually polish her skills in dealing with colors.

Laila: The violet color is always in dominance. Red is synonymous with the concept of war and love.

Laila is a versatile artist who employs various art techniques effectively in the course of bringing perfection to her paintings.

Laila: I am inclined sometimes to use the color paintings to symbolize an idea, and when I don’t feel at ease with the outcome, I shift to acrylic colors. I am capable of using all techniques of paintings.
