Having traveled a great deal, she has absorbed many new environments that have influenced her abstract paintings. She creates art from vivid memories depicting her interpretation and investigation of the outer world diffusing it with her inner world ideas. Her abstract art embodies hidden content. Each series speaks to various philosophical approaches and investigations. It also expresses a harmonious division of space, balance, and dynamics between, forms and colors. The idea in each painting is expressed through its intricate color composition either in an action painting or a meditative spontaneous approach.
