The old trading dhows of the UAE are brightly painted and decorated with colourful pictures.  My series on Dhow Art involves photos of the sections of the sides which I mounted on canvas.  The cracked paint, rusty bolts and old rope all add to the colour and texture.  I also photographed the decorations painted on the columns of the dhows such as flowers and patterns.  These pictures are currently being exhibited at the Majilis Gallery in Bastikaya, Dubai.
