Constantly juggling between the identity of a designer who photographs and a photographer who designs, she is a communication designer who communicates her ideas and ideologies with books, photographs, posters, illustrations and spaces when her words fail to do so. Her interests vary from biology to human rights to environmental studies. The inertia of her design practice is in motion towards creating work that matters. Work which informs, engages and stimulates the audience.
