This relational dialectics between the physiological and the psychological is expressed through her works that foreground the architecture of her as a person and an artist. Her works manifest in paintings, illustrations, linocut prints, mono-print prints, woodcut prints, clay sculptures, textile installation, and publication. She loves to explore how mediums - traditional, natural and man-made materials - informs each other resulting in innovative presentations and new meanings.
