My practice is primarily rooted in public communication and the building of “social networks” as a means of distributing art objects beyond the gallery space. This work is a tool for political engagement. I have committed my studio practice to the private labors involved in the production of handmade objects for public consumption during this time of digital supremacy. The time spent in production acts as a rumination on resistance. The “slow” methods of letterpress printing and hand papermaking also allow for the repurposing of otherwise discarded materials into feminist fury. The resulting text-based multiples ensure a tactile viewing experience and seamlessly transition from wall art to protest sign to print take-away and back again. They are meant for viewing in public spaces, such as, but not limited to: community health centers, alleys, hair salons, dating profile photos, bookstores and bar bathrooms. In my most recent body of work, I have transformed ephemera from letterpress printing, sewing and hand papermaking into figurative originals on canvas, which embody and represent intersectional identity through interdisciplinary practice.

My work is about expressing ideas, feelings, complaints, protests, in the form of something that people recognize. These have included medals, household shrines, tiny houses, and clothing. I have expressed frustration about housework, grief about the death of my child, made abstract work about the challenge of juggling it all. Currently I am working with clothing and the house form. Houses are seen in the Jungian tradition as a metaphor for self. Some of my Tiny Houses are about identity and feelings. While the Tiny Houses are about emotions and memory, the wearable art (which may or may not ever be worn) is all about protest and craftivism, using traditional methods of women’s handwork, applied to commercially made garments. I use appliqué, embroidery, found quilt blocks, textile collage and quilting, together with quotes, poems and slogans to get the viewer to take a look at my message, to pay attention.

I am painting with oil for its range of expression and versatility.  There is a great history of excellence with oil paints. I am committed to following the lessons and knowledge from the last centuries of artistic development to achieve artistic excellence. I begin by finding a subject matter that moves me, and stirs my soul. I contemplate the design of the painting, and simplify the shapes to create an interesting composition that draws the viewer into the painting. My goal is to connect with the beauty and wonder of that moment.

My artwork has been about responding to social justice as a critique through paintings and theatrical constructions. If you asked a young child what they thought human traffic was they might tell you it’s being stuck in a crowded room with too many tall legs around you or an adolescent might tell you it means pedestrians, and to many adults it might symbolize the migration of people or on a local scale represent the motion of commuters or festive attendees. What they are less likely to connect with is the flow of hidden and illicit human trafficking within their own community.

My work looks towards a positive renewal of life through rebirth and social justice issues. I wish to give a voice to those without one and who strive for a better life. I find my motivation is a response toward the ugliness I experienced throughout the Iraq war. As an artist, my main interests are in representing social injustice, responding to human suffering, and raising awareness about women and children and their struggle in war-torn countries in the Middle-East. The purpose of my work and my research is to tell a story about history, culture, and daily life in Iraq. This is not only my story but the story of the Iraqi people. As an artist, I’m inspired to draw, paint, and make sculptures that connect and inspire others.
