"As a woman born and raised in the Middle East, I had to accept cultural norms and traditions as they were, without question. From my perspective, I always witnessed religion and tradition outweighing everything else. I was always amazed by the impact that culture and religion had on members of my society, especially myself and other women. We lived in a small country where everyone knew each other, where thoughts and beliefs were always discussed over a cup of coffee. The cultural importance of religion and tradition did not resonate with me, and makes me wonder who I would be if I was born somewhere else. Through engaging with issues of identity and culture in my artwork, I attempt to have a deeper understanding of myself. I’m curious to explore what it means to be female and how that is based on my upbringing."
