In summary, I took inspiration for my artwork INNOCENCE LOST from both Sara and Hani’s personal stories of struggle where they talk candidly about how they once had a great life, playing peacefully with their games and toys, playing ‘Hide & Seek’ and now they live with the ‘Fear and Horror’ of losing family members, friends and their homes through war and terror. Forced to grow up too fast with the reality of human displacement and the loss of their childhood innocence.
