Artist Statement

"My mission as an artist is to tell stories that unite people. Stories about my own identity as a mixed Iranian American and German Jewish woman, about femininity in all its forms, about those whose voices are muffled or written out of the narrative, about history and our current world, about human connection and much, much more. I feel that by telling these stories, we are brought together in the most powerful way and are better aligned to make lasting change that benefits all of us. "
