Her work reflects the present political and social inequality and breakdown of our country that led us to the extreme instability, uncertainty, confusion, violence, oppression and thousands of killings. Her work is a straight forward comment to what is going on by combining the specific cultural knitting, social narratives, historical contexts intertwine with popular stereotypes.
