LEILA ELMERGAWI has long been passionate about the visual arts, but it wasn’t until college that she became enamored with painting. She wrote her undergraduate thesis on the influence of Japan on Europe embodied in Japonism in the second half of the 19th century. In the process, she became captivated by Van Gogh's attempts to reproduce Japanese woodblock prints and the therapeutic value he described in doing so. Soon, she was reproducing famous artwork herself.

Years later, Leila got through a year of reporting on deadly events for The Wall Street from Cairo by regularly painting. Her areas of expertise include impressionism art, Japanese art, and American art.
