Many of her works consists of vivid colors, patterning, and intricate detail. Her subjects can range from decoratively painted masks and fish to flowers and suns.

"I use vivid, bright colors in my pieces because to me they are pleasing to the eye and to the soul. My subjects are not serious subjects and are not suppose to be. I create pieces that I believe everyone will enjoy looking at and possibly find humorous."
