She uses a variety of different materials whose inherent physical properties are utilized to generate significant form. Voluptuousness, Sensuality, and vigorousness are all terms that have been used to describe the work. However, there are always strong structural elements that operate as a control for the visual forces. In all of the work there is a profound balance between improvisation and structure.Known also for her rich, sumptuous colors, forms that are amorphous yet bold and strong brushstrokes with buoyant rhythms.
