With a background in visual and new media art, I seek the tools, colors and shapes in my surroundings to navigate my childhood's past and memories. My work of capturing the past often presents itself in the form of multidisciplinary art. I continue to confirm my Palestinian American identity, living a cross-bordered intersectional identity. My main focus is to shed light on the losses one cannot control, the fragments of these memories remain as a form of identity in globalizing the Palestinian art community.
