Her work centers on re-imagining imaginary friends from the past and placing them in the present. In her printmaking work, she creates the lore for her creatures; with sculptural work, she brings them into the 3rd dimension; and in her paintings, she places these creatures in everyday scenarios. She has been an educator and an administrator for youth art programs for the past 3 years, including the Pre-College and Young Artist Program at San Francisco Art Institute, and Community Youth Center After School Programs (SFUSD).
