All people experience the "same feelings", no matter which country they're from, and art can help "open the heart", a Tunisian artist has said.

Zeineb Tlili Ghali is a painter who specialises in images of women and landscapes in her North African homeland.

Her work is currently on display at UN Headquarters as part of the 61st Commission on the Status of Women, along with artworks by other Tunisian artists.

She spoke to Lucy Dean about the path she took to become an artist.
