Her works stem from various points of reference such as Poetry, Prose, Theatre, Music, Identity, Culture, and the Socio-Political. Through her works, she wants to unravel the dialogue between the real and the world of imagination. Mark making, textures, become essential ingredients for bringing in the ephemeral qualities into an absurd narrative. Printmaking for her is a means to encode images with memory, allegory, motifs and capture a sense of the fleeting onto the matrix. What fascinates her the most is the translation which takes place in the process of making. The printed work archives the ‘performative’ and presents themselves as excerpts from the artist’s book.
