Her Asiatic influence manifests in subject and technique in her works. Mesmerising, her intricate and visually complex works draws the viewer into her imaginative universe. Her extraordinary technical skills, enlivens a rich melting pot of imagery borrowed from a host of disparate sources – orientalism, the lives of saints, folk art, Hindu literature and the fairytale world of the Brothers Grimm.
