Artist Helen Zughaib: LOOK WHO IS COMING TO DINNER

Helen Zughaib was born in Beirut, Lebanon, living mostly in the Middle East and Europe before coming to the United States to study art. Helen works primarily in gouache, an opaque watercolor, and ink on board. As an Arab American, Helen feels that her background in the Middle East allows her to approach the experiences she has had in America in a unique way, while remaining an observer of both the Arab and American cultures.
