In her own words:
In my work I concentrate on the skin. In my works, special features acquired during life, emerge and are elaborated on. The textures and shades, irregularities, birthmarks, scars and imperfections are all replicated in unabashed detail. I use different materials in my work. It results in a powerful and textured skin. The portraits emerge like scientific, almost minute studies.
