" I reflect Middle Eastern women in my art.  One of my pieces, Peace, Religion, is a reflection of women who are affected by war, escaping to refugee camps.  It is not religion that defines their struggle, but the fact that females are not equipped enough to survive conflict, war, and violence.  Women in the Middle East are not raised to be strong enough to face violence they encounter in refugee camps.  As in any case, women and children remain the most vulnerable in war and turmoil.  Many Syrian women I  encountered that were in refugee camps have faced violence in different ways.  This includes either being forced to get married at a young age or being sexually abused. In my paintings, my figures are the loud voice of Syrian women and girls… the ones who remain voiceless."
