Interview with Catherine Bassig-Paje. Catherine started drawing before she learned to write. After graduating from the College of Fine Arts at the University of the Philippines, and a few years learning her craft painting stage designs and murals for television shows, she moved to Bahrain to teach, motivate and inspire other young artists to believe in themselves and their art.
Nermeen was born in Pakistan, spent four years in Zimbabwe as a child, and is now living in Bahrain, and the cultures of these countries have inspired her greatly. Her thoughts and emotional state greatly directs her motivation to create artwork, which she hopes reflects peace, hope and freedom.
Interview with Shahnaz Al-Qassab. Shahnaz draws what touches her heart. She is inspired by everything, everywhere, and at all times, and is fascinated with the details of the eyes; drawing them really interests her. She does play with colours from time to time, but for Shahnaz, drawing in black, white and shades of grey is much more interesting.
