Bio & Artist Statement

I’m interested in exploring themes that deal with identity, connectedness, storytelling, spirituality, the sacred, and narratives of beauty, power, and ritual. My creative practice explores how niqab and veil adornment define feminine identity in an imagined future in a narrative where veiling can project an identity in new and fantastical ways as a metaphor for the imperceptible self, connection, spirituality and beauty.
