Her work offers another world in which a viewer might exist, where the imagination can immerse itself and supplement the ambiguous forms with fragments of memories and dreams in order to create new narratives. She aspires to create images which can metamorphose under the scrutiny of the prolonged gaze, proffering strange and uncanny manifestations of often human forms.
