My intention with this body of work is to create a visual story telling of my daughters as they come of age. They are depictions of young souls’ search for identity. As my daughters go through the adolescent years struggling to find their own voice, there are pivotal moments that are sublime and memorable. The moment when my younger daughter tries to fit in her mothers dress or when my older daughter even though 16 years old still holds on to her old teddy bear toy, is a reminder to me of the ever changing aspects of life. My paintings are illustrations of these moments. They also include some reflections of my Middle Eastern background that play a major role in my daughters’ journeys of self discovery.
