She Loves Experimenting With Textures And Effects, And Uses Both Photographic And Self-generated Material To Create Her Imagery. She Has The Capacity To Create A Bizarre, Sometimes Surreal World Of Unexpected Juxtapositions And Perspectives That Can Surprise, Disturb And Illuminate. For Editorial, Advertising, Publishing, And The Web, It Can Provide A Much-needed Element Of Ambiguity And Surprise.
