Title: My Universe
Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
Size: 45.5mm (W) x 61mm (H)
Year: 2017

Artist Statement:
“My life as a Mother is the essence of this painting.

This is me now.

Where I am.

What I am.

This is my Love of Life”


In this painting, you can see two brightest stars on the right corner that represent the children I’ve lost. And then you can see my son named Zain on a “space-board” doing the “dab”. He’s 5 years old at the time when I painted this. Around him, I painted some of his favorite characters from TV and You Tube- things that most kids from his generation could relate and would enjoy watching and playing computer games with. Besides that, I also included my favorite brushes and a pencil to represent my passion in Art and some little buildings and a car of a little town we’re staying until now. If your eyes caught some bubbles at the left lower corner of the painting, you’ll see in one of them, a “fetus” image- a child that I’m carrying who’s (God willing) due in November 2017.


This is pretty much a very fun, quirky painting that I made just to summarize my life at the moment. It’s almost surreal and can be categorized as an illustration too. The glowing Moon symbolizes my Hope for the future of my children and their generation to come. At the same time, despite the technology and modern influences, I pray that they will always remember their Root and Faith and that’s the reason I painted the Tree there.
