Her artwork consists primarily of two-dimensional paintings, drawings, and collage work. She also specializes in unique pen and ink drawings presented as simple black and white images or colorful kaleidoscope surrealism. Her art is inspired by an endless list but mainly Nature, emotion, Lakota philosophy, soul searching, organic matter, film, music and other artists.
