Her style is a mixture of romanticism and emotionalism with a strong contemporary, while also timeless perspective. The major themes in her works are human intimate portraits that capture raw human emotion and emerge out of abstract composition. She uses the human face as a prism of emotions, colors and light, specifically focusing on the eyes as they are windows to the soul and can truly depict a persons story, which contributes to the drama of the whole image. The art of Modigliani, Kandinsky, Diebenkorn inspired her work. Each painting has been layered with multiple acrylic and oil pigments, then etched, carved and varnished to achieve subtle depth and surface luminosity.
