Born in Lebanon, Nouha started off her career with a degree in Interior Design from the Lebanese University. In 1984, she was forced to leave her homeland due to the Lebanese civil war. Living abroad gave her ample opportunity for free expression and made her an avid researcher for any visual link that connects her with her cultural heritage. She strongly believes in the notion of Arabic language as art and her calligraphic compositions are a reflection of Arabic culture. She currently resides in Los Angeles where she continuously participates in group shows and community events. She has exhibited in Lebanon, the United States and Bahrain.
