Journey to The Good Life - Room 100 Gallery

Through the use of cultural patterns, illustrations, Arabic calligraphy, and audio accounts, her work strives to connect the audience with the universal human struggle of loss, pain, and the basic need for survival.
This exhibition is on view in Room 100 Gallery at Golden Belt April 6- May 6, 2018.

I was a kid - Room 100 Gallery
