Pain and Hope

This series of paintings began with a series of small paintings, then a large painting, as part of the Gaza Mural Project in Amman, after the 2009 bombing of Gaza by Israel.  This was an international project of artists who came to Jordan to create artwork in response to the bombing, sponsored by the Jordan Association of Engineers. 

This artwork also responds to my experiences traveling in Palestine, watching the news, and listening to stories from Palestinians and Israelis, Muslims, Jews and Christians.
