“I Dream of Giza” Vanessa al Rashida, MD
Specialty: Internal Medicine
Medium: Oil Pastel
Dimensions: 18 x 24 inches
Artist Statement: Ever since I was a little girl, I have always wanted to go to Egypt. I loved learning about the history and the pharaohs. My high school had a very well-rounded art studio where I would go and work on drawings, paintings, and develop my negatives during art class and even into my lunchtime. Because of my love for Egyptian history, it led me to draw this.
Note: It was not until after I was finished with my drawing that a family member surprised me with a trip to Egypt during Spring Break of my Senior year. Best surprise ever!
