Her use of less physical materials has seen her work evolve over the years and according to her, the sculpture she creates is turning out to have more of an emotional presence with the use of physical essence.
Paintbrushes and fingers are the only tools employed to create these sculptures. It starts off as a handmade metal carcass, light clay I sculpted over the latter. Mineral and oil pigments, as well as acrylic, are used to paint, while the eyes are glass. Glazing the piece helps intensify the color and strengthen sculpture.
