Yaman came to the US in 2011 after a bomb exploded beside her house in Damascus. She was separated from her kids who moved to Egypt to be in a safer place. Through her painting she expresses her sadness, pain, and aspiration for a better future, for her and her kids .. Hoping to see them again .. Hoping she has the strength to be a human again and be that rock her kids lean on .. To let go the pain and focus on the future !
