She believes that details are signatures of her work in both; in her curatorial approach and execution and her sensitively planned expressionism of her artworks from the beginning to the last breath of emotion and passion that fill up space around her artistic being. Her Work is conceptual and focuses on exploring the details of patterns, symbolism, and orientalism. She believes that west and east can be serenely unified and more, it could be an asset to the both; perceptions and believes that we hold on to.
