Her process of creative investigation strives to find truth and value with the use of stylistic and cultural movement forms which originate from identity. Her process in creation goes beyond the recreation of movement or shape, instead her practice is explored through a development of fertile art forms, which are explored through contrasting movement styles prevalent in popular, cultural and commercial dance of today.
