My body of work has helped me resolve, recover and reflect on emotions, traumas and life events. Each piece of work in this show adds to a continuous narrative that talks about being a Middle Eastern and Latina woman, who has a chronic illness and so much more that relates to the human experience. Through colorful, cartoonish and child like figures I discuss through art, hard realities and painful truths. Although deeply personal I hope that the audience finds a part of their own personal stories through my art, but more importantly I hope it inspires them to discuss, create and explore a deeper part of themselves. My work is not effortless but instead is a catharsis of emotion, that is anthropomorphized into bite sized snippets of my world.
