My works feature aspects of being an artist parallels the life of athletes. I wonder if it is possible for me to ‘win’; whether in life or the art-world. In trying to reconcile my situation, I have determined that sports, more specifically sports related imagery, are legitimate vehicles for exploring notions of ethnicity, gender, and politics. By putting myself at the center of the work and by focusing on the autobiographical, I am able to consider the political and personal views surrounding a young Muslim woman who lives with in the United States.
