Maryam Mohammed Al Zadjali was born in Bahrain in 1966.Her family migrated to the Sultanate of Oman once she completed her early education.She got married soon after moving to Oman and started a happy housewife life. Speaking to Times of Oman in an exclusive interview, Maryam said that she was happy being a housewife but there was something missing in her life.
"I always thought that I am not here just to be a house wife, and whenever I expressed my feelings regarding what I am supposed to be, my family members understood me and encouraged to work for the better of society," Maryam told Times of Oman with a smile on her face. She added:"They always found me as a creative person, and assured I have all creative values within me."
The leading Omani artist stated that she is extremely thankful to her family who helped her discover and polish the creative side, and make use of talent.
In 1993, Maryam Al Zadjali presented her first-ever artistic work which was highly appreciated by art lovers. Since then, the creative Omani painter has displayed her masterpieces at different forums and exhibitions and won several awards.
Message to the society as a woman:
"I believe women everywhere,in all forms and settings, are the real artists because they are ones who create human minds. They're the ones who have the potential to create good sons, fathers, husbands, families, and lay the foundations of a better society, state and world. So I appeal all woman of the world to use this power to create a wonderful society and work for a better future for the next generation."
"I'd also like to say to children to give respect to their parents because there is nothing more precious than them. It's not a matter whether it is Mother's day or Father's day.Celebrate every day with your parents, and get their praise and prayers. We are very lucky that we have a family system intact in our society.There are many societies in the world that are broken and do not have strong families anymore. Your parents want nothing more than your success and their respect from you".
