Areej Adel was born in Al Khobar , Saudi Arabia in 1986.

She started as an amateur photographer and photo editor working for different photography studios at a young age. Areej completed a bachelor degree in Fine Arts at Emporia State University. She describes herself as a Canon person using a 100-400mm and a 24-105mm lenses for most of her photos.

Areej uses photography to express her feelings such as joy, cheerfulness, conflict, anger, and objection. She delivers the message by capturing people’s individual characteristics and combining realistic and fictional visual elements to tell a story. Ambiguity plays an essential role in Areej’s art allowing her audience to interpret her photos in their own way.
