Statement

I am a filmmaker, photographer, illustrator and writer. My work, everything I do, is fueled by a desire to express the experience of existing in the space and time in which I do, as an Arab woman in a patriarchal society.

My creativity and practice is always an experimental process. I like working in layers and textures, using whichever medium calls to me at the moment, but language is always at the heart of it and self-discovery is its lifeblood. Much of my inspiration and subject matter comes from myself and the women around me.

I am drawn to photography and filmmaking as an initial stepping stone and research, the foundation which I build my ideas on with illustration helps me cross the boundaries of what is not allowed to be captured by a lens or said out loud.
