During a tourist trip to New York and Miami in 2009 Soukaina realized that her heart was still beating for art since she went to visit many museums and knew deep down that it was light that would dazzle her soul.

Soukaina was inspired by her atypical story which is the multiculturality of her origins and her education. In her paintings we can see her mission of the soul which is to transmit messages of peace and love in the world thanks to the colors that she uses on her artworks which propagate a majestic energy. She uses colors that soothe the mind and lift the heart.
Painting is for Soukaina a way to tell a part of her life and of her fights in a magical way. In order to refine her artistic education and mark her Arab culture Soukaina addressed the best calli-Arabic graph of Morocco to instill in her the techniques of this elegant and sweet writing.
