Her work investigates system of oppression and exploitation by examining the ways these processes reflect in the human form and in the landscape. Over a variety of paintings, photographs, sketches and writing, she critiques the contemporary US cultural climate that is violent and unsustainable in hopes to startle, shock and move viewers towards a shift in paradigm. Her work is highly experimental, mixing media and altering traditional methods and techniques.
