Painting sentiment: As I painted this my emotions pour out visualising the plight of the Palestinians. May this bring many memories of the actual Dome of the Rock.
The artist Firoza Omar resides in the South Africa’s Eden on earth, Nelspruit.
A creative soul who can see line, design, shade and hue rather than just form and figure. Her spiritual being, creative flair and philanthropic nature all merged. Furthermore, her pieces sold to raise funds for various charities. Some of her paintings raised large sums of money whilst others are internationally acclaimed. Her oil painting of Dome of the Rock resides in Palestine’s house of parliament, after a fundraising drive for Palestine. Her passion for Palestine, shows through in most of her artwork. She specialises in oils, mosaic as well as pewter. She is a compassionate painter and her love has inspired many a budding young artist. Nothing is impossible, thus she commissions work, from sceneries to flowers too.
