She uses a bold colorful palette to capture the energy she draws from this vibrant young city. Her use of tone in her compositions creates a sense of depth and perspective within her work. The images are not always meant to be realistic but are easily recognisable. The paint is applied in layers of pure colour often using colours that have little resemblance to the real structure.
