Salwa Al Yousif 

Classical Bahraini Artist Salwa Al Yousif 

Focused interests: Classical Portraiture, Landscape Art, Illustration 

 

Salwa’s artistic gift engaged at childhood while observing her artist relatives in the family. Nasser Al Yusuf, Salwa’s uncle, was one of the pioneers of visual art in Bahrain. The outlook Nasser gave her through his drawings introduced a new method of self-expression. Recollections of being in Nasser’s art studio, watching Nasser’s steps and learning from his experience were a couple of her fond memories. This granted Salwa the inspiration to start drawing. During school, Salwa’s work was admired by her art teachers, which gave her the push to further elevate her art work.

While her early interests revolved around art and the creative sphere, her academic path had steered far away from it. Salwa Al Yusuf obtained an M ED in English language teaching from University of Sheffield, England. She graduated from University of Bahrain with the degree in English Literature and Language Teaching. She began her career as an English teacher at an upper-intermediate school. As she continued to improve and develop, she was promoted continuously to head of the English department, school vice principal and eventually a principal. As a school principal, Salwa had always encouraged gifted students to develop their artistic skills. She paid special interest in developing and distributing artistic prints around the school. She finally became a director in the Quality Assurance Authority for Education and Training. She then resigned in 2008, marking the start of her artistic journey.

 

Andrew Loomis, an illustrator, has expressed his view about art claiming that “drawing is vision on paper”. This quote resonated with Salwa and after resigning, it became very apparent that it was time her artistic purpose is given fair chance. The decision of resignation was because Salwa wanted to give more time to her hobbies and self. Salwa decided to travel to different places around the world to draw from different inspiring destinations and experience them at different seasons throuhgt each year. Throughout her trips, she was always eager to visit art galleries and also view the work of different artists. Sometimes, she was lucky enough to meet and converse with artists and share their experiences and thoughts on their art pieces.

 

“I aim to spread my art and give people insight into a new perspective of art. It is not necessarily an expression of an existing visible. It’s transforming the invisible to visible and giving meaning to every thought that comes to one’s mind.”

سيرتي مع الفنغ شوي او طاقة المكان

إنطلقت للبحث عن هذا العلم …عندما وجدت نفسي في وسط مشاكل وأحداث غريبه لم أجدُ لها تفسير اً في ذلك الوقت . ومنها بدأت رحلتي مع طاقة المكان

ا أخبرتني أختيقائلة “فاتن هل تعلمين أنه يوجد علم يطلق عليه ( فنغ شوي)؟” .من هنا بدأ مشواري في عالم علمقررت بتكريس نفسي للبحث فيه  وهو: علم الفنغ شوي “.

وابتدأت انطلاقي فى البحث والتدقيق من خلال الاضطلاع العلمي في الكتب اطاقة المكان وفي صفحات الانترنت المختلفه , أيقنت بعدها أن الموضوع كبير وهام جداً وأنه عليَّ ان أبتدئ بتريب حياتي من جديد وبتعلم هذا العلم ومن ثمَّ تطبيقه على نفسي وبيوت أهلي ،وبعد هذا المشوار وجدنا أنفسنا جميعنا نتشارك قوة المحبة والحياة بنظرة مملوءة بالطاقة الكبيرة المضيئة …

ولا حظت تغير في مجرى أحداث حياتهم ووصولهم الى أهدافهم اسرع ..

وبعد بحث داما عشر سنين أجد نفسي اليوم متحررة من كلِّ ما اعتقدته هاماً في الماضي أصبح اليوم لدي رؤيا جديدة لأهمية ما أفعله من أجل المستقبل …..

سواء فى منزلي……. فقد بدأت حياتى تتضح لي أكثر  ، وتترتب اولوياتي فى الحياة  يتغير فكراً وعملاً وروحاً ومادياً ,اصبح اهتمامي بقدراتي أكثر يوماً بعد يوم , بعد أن عملت على تنظيف كل مافي البيت من من ما هو غير مرغوب فيه ، فقمت بفتح المخازن ، والتخلص من كل ماهو غير مرغوب فيه …….وبينما انا اعمل على  تنفيذ ترتيب كل زاوية بشكل منفرد في منزلي على

 حسب طاقة المكان ,

كنت ابحث عن مثل هذه الدراسات عبر الانترنت  ,فكثير من الأمور كانت مجهولة عن خبايا هذا العلم الكبير  ، فقد شعرت بوجود حلقات مفقودة لم اتمكن من الوصول لها إلا اذا درست هذا العلم …….

.وبعد تنظيف المنزل أصبحت فعلاً اتحرك بشكل وبثقة وبقوة أكبر فأجد باستمرار أفراد من الصديقات والأهل يساعدونني ويمدونني بقوة للوصول الى الحقائق .

من هنا تعرفت على استاذتي الماستر نور كايزن ”  فوضعت قدمي على أول سلم الثقة في قوة وقيمة هذا العلم  الخفي ، ومن هنا بدأت انطلاقتي .

 

وها أنا اليوم أصبحت مستشارة إلى علم طاقة المكان ، ولكني لم أكتفي فأنا ادرس بجد لأكون قريباً ماستر فنغ شوي إنشاء الله.

شغفي هو توصيل الناس الى تنفيد طاقة المكان ببساطة الى كل منزل وأنا اليوم أستمتع بنشر طاقة المكان.

 وأتمنى ان يصل الىجميع الناس بكل حب للحصول  على حياة اكثر سعادة و حب ، وصحة , وثراء . وحكمة …بسهول ويسر .

Go green! It’s not a goal, it’s a journey

“In order to explain my talent and love for woodworking, I must explain the first years of my life.”

“In those days, I found it difficult to get the needed supplies, due to financial concerns as well as the fact that our home was not in the proximity of the suppliers.”
