Illustrating my thoughts and experiences during the pandemic in Cairo since March 2020.

Remake self portrait

To manage my anxiety I've been swimming twice a week religiously for the past 6 years. I haven't swam for over 8 weeks, I miss the water and I miss the blue. To me swimming is a cleansing ritual, one which I'm now unable to practice.

Companionship

As an engineer and an extreme extrovert, my husband Hazem isn’t used to working from home. As we now share space and daily routines, he has become part of my creative process which I would normally experience while he is at the office.

Grief

I lost my grandmother 4 years ago, she was my life and my best friend, she was my voice of reason and peace. I console my grief and need for her during the pandemic by embroidering old photos of hers
