The nation is now her canvas

Even before she knew the meaning of words, Noor al Suwaidi could form the shape of letters in English and Arabic. As a very young child she would spend hours tracing the patterns from greeting cards sent to her parents and copying the intricate curves of the letters. Drawing was her passion.

As she grew, this love matured into a deep appreciation for all forms of art, which has led her to where she is today – a respected artist with ambitions to become a curator promoting the artwork of her homeland.Like most young Emiratis, Miss al Suwaidi, 28, has seen many changes over the past 20 years. In the art world, in particular, there has been a transformation.“Even four years ago when I said I was an artist people thought I would come and paint the walls in their house... or perhaps do pencil drawings for children’s books. But now things are very different. People ask questions. They are genuinely interested.”
