Art, for her, has been a way to expressing her perception, dreams, and aspirations of women. In early years, women’s’ roles have varied in the society for the period of time. She tends to focus on the topic of discriminations and double standards faced within the walls of her society. She always visually managed to incorporate all the elements of this topic and create an impact insincere positivity. I work in a very limited palette of colors. She changes my palette depending on a series of work; lately, she been working on a series of seamless cubic patterns with underlying various perspectives of women within transparent layers to capture her distinctive personality.
Abstract figurative art is what she chooses as a theme and she expresses her strong feeling to capture the beauty of women. Positive feminism is what she explores. Powerful and strong women want she wants to depict her art.
