I was born In Alexandria Egypt.
My Interest in painting developed in College. In my freshman’s year of Medical School, I
joined the independent fine arts program offered at the University Of Alexandria Atelier.
As a student I participated in several University group shows and competitions, to win
several scholastic awards.
In 1973, I had my first Solo Show at the University Physicians Club. My second show
was in 1975 at the Centre Culturel Francais.
After Graduation, I practiced general Medicine till I came to the USA in 1981 where I
completed my Medical Training. I have been in practice of Psychiatry in the San
Francisco Bay area since.
Although I continued to paint, I did not show again until 1996. I produce about 20 medium
and large size paintings a year in addition to a number of small size paintings and
drawing. My favorite medium is Oil.
The subjects of my paintings are varied. The style reflects an Egyptian and south
Mediterranean influence. Many of my paintings depict human figures. The characters are
involved in a struggle. They are captives of time, and the reason for their existence.
