Her works are a combination of both traditional and postmodern elements – she actually uses computer-based tools and techniques to sketch and test her proposed paintings before starting on them. The results as we see are quite striking with renaissance-like figures combined with elements and symbols of Japanese art in some. The result – a new form of allegory with a modern twist perhaps?
