Nagah was born in 1978, Harrania village. Her family are milkmen whom collected the milk from the farmers in the village and sold it in the city.
As all other children, she attended the local primary school from the age of 6 until 16. When Nagah was 11, she started coming to the art centre with other young kids to play after school and during summer holidays. By 1990 she was keen to start weaving and was given a small loom.
She is part of the 3rd group of boys and girls of the second generation. Their studios were at the far end of the garden, closely monitored by Suzanne so not to be influenced by the other older children whom started few years earlier.
Nagah soon developed her own world of weaving allowing her to enjoy the discovery and capabilities of weaving. Her subject matter varies from depicting village stories and farmer’s activates in the fields, to market places, the sea and garden landscapes with their detailed flowers and cactus.
Nagah is a mother of 3 children; her eldest is 11 years old.
