Riham El-Adl: On Taking Chances and Following your Dream

Riham El-Adl

At El-Shai, we’re avid supporters of following your dreams, even if it means a major career shift! This is why we were very excited to have the chance to interview abstract artist Riham El-Adl.

If you’ve worked in media, then you must know who Riham El-Adl is! 

She spent almost 18 years working in PR agencies in Egypt, Dubai, and San Francisco.

Riham El-Adl was the General Manager at Hill+Knowlton Strategies in Egypt, one of the region’s biggest PR agencies. Additionally, Riham served as PR Director for El Gouna Film Festival.

Two years ago, Riham decided to quit and become a painter, full-time.

As if that wasn’t a risk on its own, Riham quit her job while still an amateur, but now, two years later, she already had two exhibitions!

Riham fell in love with arts shortly after falling in love with her husband three years ago. Her mother-in-law is world-renowned Norwegian artist Britt Boutros Ghali

Stay tuned for more about Britt Boutros Ghali, her work, and how she inspired Riham in our follow-up interview.
