Without the influence of formal training, she has the freedom to explore and express her creativity in a way that is truly authentic to her individual perspectives and experiences. She uses her knowledge of photography to create original works mixing painting and photography, called “New Pop Realism." This movement refers to a contemporary art movement that draws inspiration from both pop art and photorealism, combining elements of popular culture with a hyper-realistic painting style. This genre emerged as artists sought to explore fresh ways of engaging with the visual world while commenting on the complexities of contemporary society.

She may incorporate recognizable symbols, celebrities, consumer products, or media references into their work.

He is recognized for creating large-scale sculptures and paintings that reference popular culture and consumer products.
