Sub-contexts in her work make reference to feminism, psychology, and our relationships to our bodies.
Some exhibition highlights of 2020 are the “Fourth Annual International Short Film Festival”, Aggregate Space Gallery, Oakland; and group shows at ArtJuxtapoze in Rosendale, NY and the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts in Long Beach Island, NJ.
