Having known each other online for some years, I had the privilege of meeting Giulia Baita in person at the opening of the “The Beauty Myth” exhibition at the Copernicus Gallery in Milan in May 2019.
It was an exciting day. Not only did we meet guests attending the opening but we also participated in a live mobile art workshop that Giulia had organized for that afternoon.
Giulia lives in Cagliari, the capital city of the Italian island Sardinia. In March 2017 she founded the MAG MobileArtGroup on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to promote Mobile Art as a new form of contemporary art.
I am sure that all the artists who are with me in this group will agree with me when I say how grateful I am for her passion and enthusiasm as well as her dedication to the artists she comes in contact with on a daily basis.
She has organized a number of exhibitions and as an artist who has been selected to participate, I can commend the organization and professionalism that accompany these events.

After following Rad Drew on social media and admiring his outstanding photography and editing skills, I was happy when on his trip to the United Arab Emirates he suggested we meet. We met at the futuristic Masdar City in Abu Dhabi which I loved to photograph as we lived nearby. Rad was visiting his friend Riyad in Abu Dhabi at the time and the two of them can be seen in this photo I took. Rad is wearing a Kuma, a rounded Omani cap traditionally worn by men.
Rad later invited me to write a guest blog post for his website and I willingly obliged. The article is entitled “Letting in the Light”.
