Her subjects often include the social and political scape with focus on the art world phenomenon, which she funnels into her practice in unusual and personal ways. Through various methods and mediums, including writing, performance, drawing, and sculpture, she addresses, challenges, and becomes the subject of her artwork.

While often focusing on women and gender issues, she presents a wider critical discussion that involves art history and theory. Her exhibitions and performances are at once serious and wryly humorous.
