I am known as a "Woman" who was born and raised in a predominantly Muslim family and society in the southern part of Thailand. I was raised in accordance of the doctrine by the family which mainly focuses on the transmission of religious provisions. Having been absorbed and intended, I hereby present my art as an empowering “Muslima” to reflect my personal attitude towards religions, beliefs, faith and cultures as well as conservative norms. Also, it is about the way of women’s life in the family including changing schools to expand the world of learning cross-cultural aspects. This has brought a huge impact on one’s perspective in each age range. By bringing Batik, a hidden gem of southern woman’s clothes cut into strips one by one and then binds, tie, knit and weave them together with kitchenware related to earlier life until this era.
