With the oil on canvas and paper paintings, I seek to interpret an imagined environment and surrounding ecosystem. I combine symbols of identity, religion and science into an idealized, surreal landscape. The gestural mark making is guided by intuition, with thickness of paint ranging from thick to thin. Spiritually charged clouds are influenced by my digital photography. Biblical and Qur'an verses are informed by my multi-cultural background and travels to Israel and Morocco.
