Dodi often draws her inspiration from the natural landscapes of Jordan, such as the rock formations of Wadi Rum and the ancient rock carvings of Petra. Additional work reflects the village life of Jordan, the mystic life of the Sufis and more recently has explored Western and Arabic film and music icons and legends through a pop style with digital experimentation.
