Biography   Sumayyah Samaha


The following is from the artist:

BIOGRAPHY:
I spent the first thirteen years of my life in Shweir, a village north east of Beirut. My play grounds were the woods and church yards. I was privileged to grow up surrounded by incredible beauty. I draw on memories stored in my veins, my heart, my brain. We moved to Beirut when I was fourteen.

I graduated from the American University of Beirut where I got acquainted with the American culture. In the States I go to the Catskill mountains and Amagansett.

My main media are oils and pastels. I am directly influenced by Arshil Gorky and Mark Rothko. I am an avid reader of fiction of writers from all over the world. The word also influences my imagery.
