Consequently enabling an aesthetic exploration of sexuality, gender, personality and status, and how pose, expression and clothing can change how we perceive the body and individual. Her artwork also investigates the relationship between the individual’s internal and external world, through incorporating textures and architecture to create patterns corresponding to the various layers of personality, identity and experience.
