all the work featured on this website is by me unless otherwise stated.

mini bio:
Born in Beirut in 1979, Lina holds a BA in Graphic Design from the American University of Beirut (2001), an MA in Book Arts from Camberwell College of Arts (2004), and an MRes in Humanities and Cultural Studies from the London Consortium, Birkbeck, University of London (2009) where she has recently completed her PhD on 'Scientific Playthings: Artefacts, Affordance, History' (2013).

Alongside her art practice, Lina has worked as a designer, a creator/coordinator of theory and practice workshops, a graphic design and book arts instructor, and a lecturer on interdisciplinary connections between science, art and design.

In parallel to her research concern with mechanical playthings, Lina's recent artwork evolves around attempts at building improbably large (and somewhat a bit sad) toys. Inevitably, there's also always a bit of Beirut in almost anything she does or thinks.
