ARTIST STATEMENT My name is Mariam and I am a visual artist, mouth painter, speaker and advocate for people with spinal cord injury. I am a member of the Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists (MFPA).
I am also a member of the Associate Board at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, helping with events like Art In Motion raising funds for RIC's art therapy program.
My artistic interests are constantly morphing as I like to experiment with traditional oil painting and modern mixed media techniques. My paintings and other works have been exhibited internationally and are in numerous private collections.
