“The moon. It is the silent twin of the earth, illuminating in darkness. It’s beauty and mystic being adored when surrounded in the night. I believe we all have our own moon, something that influences our being, with purpose and with intent. For me it takes an intense form from two contrastive perspectives. Two that cannot have one without the other. Their relationship and the beauty between them is what inspire me.
I have always been drawn to a traditional Islamic dress, the Abaya. It has movement, energy, drama and emotion. Being a Muslim myself it also speaks to me religiously. Looking at the Abaya from an artistic point of view, I find it emotional and a protective form. It is the shell of something internal, whether it be physical or spiritual. Therefore, some of the concept pieces that I create are part of my own personal vision of my own “Abaya” or protective layer.”
