Kawther was born in 1990, shortly before the beginning of the Gulf War, and raised in Kuwait. Her outward passion and drive for the arts was first discovered at the young age of four.
Her work is highly multi disciplinary and attempts to bridge the gap between art and design. She focuses on finding patterns for human intimacy and truth, whether this manifests itself in finding cultural significance, integrity in materials, or creating human connections.
OBJECTIVE Seeking a position in an industrial design or furniture firm
that will allow me to utilize my skills, to help make human
centered, high quality, high value designs.
