An example of fine art by Salma Motakef

I began painting in childhood and love it for two reasons: I can use my own skill and imagination to create something never before seen, and I can capture emotion; a mood or feeling, that cannot be described in words, but can in art. I adore Renaissance artists, DaVinci and Michelangelo, and use colours that to me invoke their time: brown, ochre, sienna, gold. I was on hiatus to raise a family; now I return to my art with much joy and I am very excited to display my art in shows and festivals. I use oil and acrylic paints and paint mainly in Impressionist and Realist styles, and I love and frequently incorporate blending in my works. I use vibrant happy colours to capture lively scenes.
