The mediums she works with most often are acrylic, oil paint (and occasionally an infusion of the two) with some sculptural elements, all pieced together on the canvas. She tends to revisit and make reference to the works of painters who came before her, and interpret or rework the works in the way she sees fit for her narrative and relatable to her practice. To name a few artists, the works of Kerry James Marshall, Njideka Akunyili-Crosby, Cinga Samson, Nandipha Mntambo and Henri Rousseau have played the biggest role in influencing the artist’s practice as well as her way of thinking.
