My artwork is inspired by conflict, identity and motherhood that spans both abstract and figurative genres with pop art influences. I combine digital compositions and photography with painting and drawing and integrate image transfers into my work, which heightens the interactions between the form and content and produces characteristics vital to my work. And sometimes, I like to just paint.
