In his paintings reflected the artists long standing attempt to grapple with a contemporary world that is completely saturated with images. Images that embody the paradoxical status of being both completely over-bearing, yet irresistible, both entrancing and anxiety provoking. They exert an almost ghostly weightless presence, blurring past present and future and indeed our very notions of what constitutes reality. The artist has participated in CI Bloom, CI Art Fair and ArtWeeks (2023) and Artshow with KAIROS Gallery in 2024. In 2024, she took part in the exhibition called 'New Lands' at Arkas Sanat Alaçatı, which brought together nearly 150 artists.
