I am an artist and arts worker living and working on the unceded lands of the Dharug and Gundungurra peoples.
I use the pronouns she/her and was born in Lebanon.
I use digital media and embroidery with a focus on self representation as a tool to engage with the politics of image making and consumption.
I was awarded the Create NSW visual arts fellowship for emerging artist 2021/2022 and in 2021 I was awarded the Blake prize (emerging artist).
I work as a creative producer at Utp and have worked at SBS radio as a broadcast journalist.
