Oumaya Alieh Soubra was born in Beirut in 1926. A pharmaceutical laboratory analyst who also painted, she was the first woman elected to the Pharmaceutical Society in 1955 and had a successful professional career until she lost her medical analysis laboratory during the Lebanese civil war. She then chose to dedicate herself entirely to painting, which had hitherto been only a hobby.
