ABOUT THE ARTIST

Sharifa Marhuby's enthusiasm in art started developing at a very young age whilst watching her two brothers churning out beautiful pieces of wall art.  At the age of 12 she produced a remarkable portrait of a Head of State and proudly presented it to him.  Greatly encouraged she made a portrait of yet another Head of State which was hung in the Primary School she was attending.  With an MSc in Economics Sharifa worked fulltime leaving little room for pursuing her childhood dream of becoming an artist.  On retirement from work in 2011 the doors opened to training on fused glass art in the UK.  This meant the beginning of creating her unique art pieces. 

 

Colourful clothing and intricate jewellery, typical of Omani culture and heritage, has been a great inspiration in Sharifa's choice of colours, patterns, and motifs.  Sharifa explores the versatility of glass to skilfully create a one-of-a-kind collection of original work.  She fuses her glass paintings in her own kiln at high temperatures.  Sharifa further uses powdered glass to produce various playful shapes and designs.  She then gives the work either a smooth or a textured finish.  To add elegance to well deserving pieces she gives them a final touch of genuine liquid gold.  Within just a short span of time her work has succeeded in attracting buyers not only in Oman but as far as the United Arab Emirates and the UK.
