Through the connection with space and transition, a subject matter lives which is reflective of the way we all as humans respond to situations over time.
In her own words: “I look to confront and identify problematic social issues which affect day-to-day life. As I exhibit throughout the world, my works are often inspired by my travels. My approach is to have an enriching addition to the artistic fabric that is filled with multicultural and multidisciplinary dimensions that act as a form of progression towards a universal form of expression.”
