"I am collaging photographs, my drawings and using natural fiber as well as calligraphy as well as calligraphy, to stitch together voices from different cultures.

Some voices may get lost or silenced but new ones rise up and I want to acknowledge this in my work.  To emphasize this I use burning as a technique. Destroy the old and create the new.  Rise from the ashes."
