"Art has always had a special place in my heart. I began creating art at an early age; it became an addiction of sort. Art was the drug. I inhaled it and broke through a color spectrum that shaded and shaped my life. But my pencil was only my gateway drug; I rapidly discovered and experimented with other mediums. Photography became a special media for me. I found something that allowed me to freeze time; I captured moments and made them stand still forever." - Noura
