Her paintings are often inspired by the physical environment (sea, sky, cloud, land scapes) she lives in, everyday objects that surrounds her, fused with her past images and memories.   Her paintings are derived from intuition, memory, and direct observation.  Living in Seattle with its beautiful nature where there are waters (Sound) and mountains everywhere she looks, she paints what impresses her and naturally demand pause and close examination.  Shapes, colors, textures mesmerizes her - be it nature, or still life objects that she collects.  That is the theme of her paintings.
