She uses her art to shed light and speak on day to day issues around the Naked human body and using it as a tool to combat stigmas around gender , identity, violence and sex. Many of her digitally created photographs are surreal and thought provoking as they are layered with movement and emotion that give the Artworks an exploratory three dimensional space, her performances are thought provoking and are manifestations of her inner being , expressed solely for healing purposes, healing the Artist and the Audience, using her body and that of any one else who she photographs as a weapon against patriarchy.
