        My most recent series, Untitled (Undead), springs from my persistent interest in the destruction of the Lebanese Civil War and its aftermath.

    • Habit

       My recent work delves into the contradictions and spiritual practice of female monastic communities as metaphors and case studies. My collaborations explore the lines between art, commerce, and devotion, while considering the role of gender in these Utopian societies.
