Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
Samia Al Homsi Dagher, professional artist and software engineer based in Lebanon.

My art journey started when I was five when I did a simple sketch of my grandpa using a pencil, the result turned out to be quite good for a five years old girl.
The encouragement of my parents made me focus on drawing along with my scientific studies as they provided the necessary tools and ambiance for me to do the thing I love the most, so I kept on practicing.

I majored in Computer science and got my diploma from the Lebanese University Faculty of Science, two years later I got my Masters degree in Software engineering.
I also majored in Fine arts and got my diploma from the Lebanese University Institute of Fine arts.

Majoring in art made me explore the beauty of all mediums so I had the chance to work with charcoal, pencils, acrylic, oil, pastel ..etc.
Although ballpoint pen wasn't among the mediums we experienced in college, yet drawing with a pen got me hooked when I first saw it on Youtube, that's when I decided to master it.
Couple of years ago I started focusing on only pen and so I practiced by sketching portraits and doodles, some of them are attached below.
Participating in exhibitions wasn't my passion and that is because I wasn't quite ready to give out any of my original pieces, Instead I created my accounts on social media that allows me to show my art pieces and my work in progress without having to give any of them away.

Two years now I started my Instagram account and along the way I managed to practice almost every day to keep up with the audience and those who awaits my artworks.
Portraits and figures weren't only my passion as I also practiced on drawing Disney characters because I felt that these illustrations may reach their way faster to the heart of a bigger audience that includes all ages.
What was even more challenging for me was to create original art pieces that were only from my imagination.
I also tried to mix in some of other illustrations between well known characters and doodles from my own imagination.

Social media galleries:…

Art for me is not only a hobby or a profession, it's my passion.
As long as I can still carry a pen, drawing is the thing I love to do the most.

Your pen drawings are so legit that I refuse to believe anyone can draw like that. I mean, I thought they were all photos! NOT drawings!

Im a dedicated follower of yours on Instagram but I cant believe how amazing your art is. You definitely deserve more recognition.

Every single one of your pieces blows my mind! I dabble in pen occasionally as well but you - you are simply phenomenal.

Your artwork is very beautiful, Samia, but I must say I was very drawn by your dA ID. You are so very beautiful. And from Lebanon? Awesome. I used to draw in only pen in middle school and had gotten really good in it. Added a number of images to my so-called portfolio, but unfortunately my folder of many great drawings was accidentally thrown away one day by my sister who was cleaning the book shelf at home while I was in class in college. I lost just about all of my work. Now the only drawing I have left is here in my gallery. It's not much, but it is still a taste of what I was capable of. I've never colored with pen though. That's an entirely different creature that you've gotta teach me about. :D
