"I tessellate images from everyday life using Islamic geometric patterns. Utilizing the structure imposed by the pattern, personal and narrative images hide in plain view without being the sole focus. The shapes in the patterns are a point of origin for plays on color and spatial structure while creating order to help me understand the natural world. Exploring the idea of privacy, images are present but hidden or veiled, like my hair which I cover with a scarf in public."
