About me and my Art

Wooden Hut

Born in the US in 1987 and coming from an Assyrian family, I define myself as an environmental artist shaped by Western and Arabic influences.

Graduated with  a bachelor's in Art Education and Master’s degree in Studio Arts at SACI College of Art & Design in Florence, my passion is about reaching to hearts and minds by transforming trash to art in a way that challenges our consumer’s behavior and the waste we generate. 

If my main focus is about plastic pollution in Jordan urban and natural environments (Wadis, seasides, deserts), the time I spent in Europe gave me the opportunity to create sensorial installations about other themes that are close to my heart such as feminism and the arabic culture identity as well as art therapy programs for vulnerable communities.

Since I moved to  Jordan in 2019 I  have continued to create installations and art pieces for several gallery spaces using trash materials collected in the streets of Amman.  

The corona pandemic continues having a direct impact on the increased consumption of single-use products such as masks, gloves and packaging.

 

Together, we can mitigate this additional burden on our ecological footprint by more responsible behaviours towards what we buy and how we dispose of it.   

The trash we generate never goes aways. It will come back to us in one way or another.
