More recently, she took up painting simply as a fun little hobby, teaching herself different techniques and styles. However, the hobby blossomed into a passion, which was fueled by recognition over today’s rapid social media. Encouraged by her admirers, she pursued painting more fervently. Now her artwork has come to the attention of local art collectors, where her beautiful pieces are being added alongside well known artists and newcomer talents alike.

Hawa’s paintings have a strong expressionist influence. She enjoys bright, bold colors, distinct brush strokes, abstract shapes, and the female form, though she does not box herself into one style. Her artwork varies from playful to thought provoking, always with beautiful visual aesthetics. She gathers inspiration from careful observance of the world around her, the strong women of her family, her fantastic dreams, and, of course, her two adorable Chihuahuas.
