Her practice is primarily rooted in painting and she experiments in using painting as a method for creating manifestations of human anxiety.
At NES she has been exploring local folklore and creating paintings that are reflective of these tales. Her recent work at NES is inspired by different methods of fortune telling and prophecy reading.
