Faiza Saeed is the first artist in Bahrain to focus on the craft of mosaic design. When she was younger, Faiza was constantly experimenting with various art forms until she discovered mosaic art while visiting museums in Britain, Italy and Spain. Her love for mosaic deepened when she met and learned from legendary British mosaic artist Emma Biggs in London. Finding her passion in mosaic made her realize that a person doesn’t have to be an excellent painter or illustrator to be an artist.
Faiza’s mission is to spread the art of mosaics in Bahrain. She wants to beautify her native Bahrain by adding pops of color with mosaics everywhere. In addition, mosaics are the most durable art form because they can withstand Bahrain’s hot summer months, as well as wind and rain in the winter months. Faiza continues to experiment with mosaics, first on tables and wall pieces, as well as coffee tables and pots. Faiza continues to sell her work in markets, at exhibitions, and conducts classes for beginners and intermediates.
