The latest collection of work has been described as a "passionate collection of paintings that explore rebirth, identity, history, and humanity's origins." Her work is "characterized by an elegant balance between mythical and realistic imagery. The tightly woven, reflective waters of her canvases are overlaid with figurative narratives and the result is a body of work that is both beautiful and, at times, haunting." Her style has also been described as a, "combination of representationalism, realism; naturalism, and takes the form of illustrational depictions of happiness using stylized, personal exaggerations and distortions. It is Post-Surrealism! Her technical virtuosity more than adequately presents her perception and cognition of an ideal romantic world in which she is both instigator and willing participant." Her work has been published in "a large and lavish colour catalogue showcasing paintings by a new and very talented Vancouver artist"
