Artwork revolving around the artists emotions and environment, setting  on each specific piece. Her artwork has a wide range from abstract to nature themed and anything in between. Embracing her viewers and commissioners ideas is what truly brightens up her artwork. She believes taking an idea and making it come to life for someone is remarkable. Working in large scale canvas or large murals is what makes her artwork special.
