Photography is a form of self-expression to her and self portraits are of great importance in her work. Through these self-portraits she finds a way of exploring herself as a female. Another great importance is still life photographs, which mostly arise by intuition. Both portraits and still lifes are bound together with a touch of humor and provocation, a combination which makes her complicated subjects more accessible.
