An artist whisks us on a journey through time and place as memories from Doha and Egypt bubble to the surface. Inspired to draw, her intricate sketches merge with these remembrances as the viewer is treated to an artistic representation of her internal dialogue, combining both her current and past experiences in a rich visual tapestry.
