Karen Zeidan

BA in Studio Arts, American University of Beirut (2014)

Zeidan pursed a BA in Studio Arts with an initial focus on 3D art and installation. This led her to experiment with form and triggered her passion for handmade objects. While studying jewellery making and design in Florence, she continued this exploration of raw materials and was inspired by the essential quality and rawness found in natural elements. Her work in both the arts and fine jewellery fields thus compliment each other. In her series Minerals she portrays three untouched naturally occurring minerals in intricate and delicate watercolor compositions.
