Rima Al-Juburi was born in Austria and grew up between Baghdad and Europe. She initially studied architecture but soon turned to the painting and design of ceramics and porcelain.
Her work has been shown all over the world; from Vienna to Amman; Baghdad, San Francisco, and Abu Dhabi. Rima finds inspiration in a variety of Arabic symbols, in particular, the Iraqi date palm to which she likens the Iraqi woman: “roots deep in the earth, head held high with pride towards the sun; uneasy to defeat or bend over time”.
