Making art with people in locked spaces like mental institutions, prisons and juvenile detention centers is important to me. I think delivering meaningful arts education to young people is a tool for coping, improving self-esteem, developing confidence and connection. Any chance I have to support another person to discover their inherent creativity and the joy of making something with their hands brings me great satisfaction.

In an interview with Impakter, she says, "When I create patterns, I want them to pulsate with a sense of rhythm, movement, and playful nonsense, which is also an integration of geometric and organic forms. When I paint people, I want them to radiate warmth, humanity and the beautiful characteristics of the human face."
