Welcome To My Website 

First and foremost, I'd like to extend a warm welcome to you on my website. You can learn more about my previous and ongoing projects on this site. Some of them have recently been accomplished, while others are still in the process.

My artistic aim is to fight for those who lack the ability to speak up for themselves. Demonstrate their difficulties and sorrow, and discover various ways to assist them.

For me, art acts as a means of conveying a message and highlighting a case.

I hope you enjoy it and remember that your suggestions, ideas, and questions are always welcome; please contact me if you have any.

About
Nora Alshaikh

I am a self-taught Palestinian artist, nurtured in a family that values art in all its forms. With a poet father, a talented cook for a mother, and supportive sisters and brothers, I learned the profound lesson that a woman—whether she is a mother, a sister, or a daughter—ought to be loved and cherished.

As a Palestinian artist, Palestine and Palestinian Art serve as central themes in my artistic creations, alongside a diverse exploration of humanitarian concepts like refugees, displacement, and the struggles of children worldwide

My children, Qais and Zaina, stand as my most ardent supporters, continually inspiring me through the highs and lows of my artistic journey. I dedicate my achievements to them, striving to become a better person for their sake.

MY MISSION & VISION

My online art gallery is a secure space where I've created a platform to express my views on the world through art, particularly highlighting the ongoing events in my homeland, Palestine. My primary focus revolves around the experiences of children and women.

Being a woman myself, I understand the challenges of safeguarding one's family and children during displacement, especially when many Palestinian men are either martyred or imprisoned. This thought deeply saddens me, reflecting the harsh realities faced by families in such circumstances.

My Mission & Vision

​Through my art, I have emphasized the Palestinian struggle, and as a result, I created a series of artworks that tell a small part of Palestinian suffering. Palestine, particularly Jerusalem, was one of the most rapidly developing and inhabited countries of the time. Palestine is where Profit Ibrahim lived. It is where the Prophet Muhammad's ascent into heaven took place in Al-Isra' and al-Mi'raj from Qubbat Alsakhra in Jerusalem. It is where Profit Issa was born and raised, It wasn't land with no people, as they claim, and it is our responsibility to demonstrate this to the rest of the world.

Today, the 7 million Palestinian refugees who suffered a lot, and experienced many things but they were strong and are still raising the voice of the resistance in all its forms; art, music, and more. My main goal, as one of the Palestinians who didn't get the chance to return to my homeland after displacing my parents, is to keep doing art for Palestine and the Palestinian people, spreading awareness about them until the entire world is aware of them. 

My Style & Medium

Within the realm of artistry, my style is distinctly contemporary and modern, a fusion that infuses vibrancy into every creation. I derive immense satisfaction from employing bright and modern organic pigments in the background, resulting in dynamic artworks seamlessly adaptable to diverse environments.

My forte lies in the art of portraiture, where passion meets proficiency. Portraits, and particularly the intricate details of the eyes, serve as a captivating canvas for the nuanced exploration of human emotions. Each stroke and shade endeavors to capture the rich tapestry of feelings, from the subtle nuances of sadness to the effervescent hues of joy.

In the world I create, art is not merely seen but felt, a vibrant tapestry that invites viewers into a realm where modernity and emotion intertwine seamlessly.

The principal components of my palette consistently feature ocher, ultramarine blue, and crimson red tones. I take pleasure in mixing diverse hues, aiming to achieve a comprehensive color spectrum. Earth pigment hues constitute the predominant palette in the majority of my artworks.

For larger canvases, I opt for oil as my preferred medium, meticulously selecting art supplies. Nonetheless, on a personal level, watercolor painting stands as one of the most aesthetically captivating and exhilarating forms of artistic expression.
