Head Shot Nada Romanos Abizaid _ November Solo Exhibit.jpg

Nada Romanos Abizaid was born and raised in Beirut, Lebanon, and is currently living in McLean, VA. Her childhood and early adulthood spent in a war-torn country on the Mediterranean Sea were a mix of distressing times along with contemplative moments where she found solace in nature and art.

Fleeing Lebanon during a period of turmoil to continue her education, she attended The Corcoran School of Art in Washington DC where she earned a BFA in Graphic Design. Working thereafter as a graphic designer in Beirut, her focus was primarily on corporate identity, print design and packaging. She designed two banknotes in circulation in Lebanon since 1994. 

Nada’s passion for working with clay started in 2002 and she has since continuously grown as an artist through education, mentorship and workshops.

Initially, her style in ceramics was influenced by her training as a graphic designer and depicted clean lines, slabs, and geometric shape inspired murals.

Since moving to the US she has been drawn back to nature, her happy place, and finds inspiration on the East Coast and in the West while exploring parks, reserves, enjoying mountainous winter scenes and coastal beauty. Her appreciation for nature's organic attributes and seasonal mutation led to a less structured artistic expression and the creation of stoneware sculptural nature inspired forms. 

Nada is an active participant in regional and national art exhibits and has received awards for her ceramics artworks.
