CURRENT VISUAL ARTIST
Nada Khatib is a Canadian artist and acrylic palette knife painter originally from Toronto and currently residing in Calgary. She is self-taught and has been painting for 12 years. After working in the corporate sector for over 5 years, Nada decided to pursue art full time in the spring of 2018 and has not looked back since. She has successfully sold over 200 original paintings and has participated in over 10 exhibits in Canada.
Nada’s secret weapon is the palette knife, which is a tool she uses to create lively texture. She is known for her bold color palettes and thick paint, which have a way of making her feel alive and are essential to her creativity. Nada pulls her inspiration from Mother Nature, her travels around the world and the beautiful people she has met along the way. Every painting is made with care and love and is the result of a creative search to express herself and inspire others.
Nada’s work often explores the relationship between reality and fantasy often merging the two into a colorful and bold result. She uses a variety of materials and processes in each piece and the outcome is not always calculated. The process can sometimes involve a sketch and well thought out plan and other times, she thoroughly enjoys allowing her hand and heart to guide her through the painting. In the latter cases, she finds herself creating and learning fascinating new techniques, which is one of her favorite aspects of the process.
Nada also teaches painting and drawing and has a passion for sparking people's creative abilities. She is working on building her own company,Expression By Nada, to spread her love of visual art. Her goal is to create and use art as a healthy outlet and tool to communicate and express thoughts,ideas, memories, dreams and emotions.To view more of her unique artwork, painting videos and behind the scenes footage, be sure to follow her on Instagram and join her fast growing art community by searching the handle @expressionbynada on Instagram.For any inquiries or information on purchasing paintings, custom artwork or art classes, please contact Nada at email@example.com
