Alya was born in Abu Dhabi before it looked the way it does today. Since her childhood all what her eyes saw was wide landscapes covered with sand, so she always assured that all joyful colors would be included in her canvas. She starred drawing at a very young age to express herself, as she believes that what we see is always meaningful and truthful than what we hear. As she delved into life she got distracted from art for a long time but lately she came back to realize that drawing is the best way for her to inspire her in her life and reflects a positive energy. Her main inspiration in drawing is looking at space as it gives her the courage to sail in life to achieve her goals.
