The final work is a marriage of chance and skill that upon completion may end up with just a few vestiges of it's beginnings. She often pours paint, or applies it with tools such as rollers, spatulas and various unconventional tools. she strives to show the essence of a subject. while adding emotional and aesthetic content.
She believes that when an artist creates a work of art and someone observes it, they  also looking at a self portrait of the artist, as nothing can come out of the artist that is not within the artist. You are seeing what the artist is feeling as well as what he or she is seeing and also  the depth of their sensibilities.
