In the town of Nabatieh, Ghinwa Baderdeen found solace in drawing. It was her childhood hobby and little did she know it would become her lifelong passion. As she grew older, Ghinwa also honed her proficiency in the English language, using it to promote her knowledge of art.
After her husband's sudden death, Ghinwa fell into a deep depression. But it was through painting that she found the remedy to her pain. Her mother encouraged her to revisit her childhood dreams, and painting became her shelter, a place where she could find peace and comfort. Her paintings are a reflection of her emotional attachment to the things and scenes she draws, making them unique and untraditional.
Ghinwa continuously strives to develop her art skills, studying various art encyclopedias in different languages and attending several art courses and workshops. She draws inspiration from impressionists like Monet and Cézanne, as well as Pointillists or Divisionists like Georges Seurat. Her paintings revolve around real incidents, touching on issues of women's rights, freedom, human relationships, and heritage.
Over the years, Ghinwa has participated in several exhibitions at the Unesco Palace in Beirut and others in Nabatieh. She remains dedicated to her craft, using it as a means to heal and inspire others.
