Ula Mohammad Al-Taiee is currently having her Solo Show, Middle Eastern Treasures, at Warehouse 1005, on the corner of 1st Street and Roosevelt, Phoenix. It is a collection of 26 impressionist paintings, many of which feature scenes from her native Iraq.
Ula fell in love with painting in high school in Baghdad. While attending the University of Baghdad to earn a degree in English Literature, she decided also to study painting with the now famous Iraqi artist, Khalid Al-Jadir, and remained with him for four years (1968-1972) at the Art College program.
Her first solo exhibition in 1971 was at the Al-Alwaya Club. Ula is an impressionist artist and has exhibited worldwide, including Memphis, Kuwait, London, Greece and Iraq.
