Her skilful handling of colours and themes gives an unusual textual quality to her work. Figurative in style her canvas often portrays a central character as part of her narrative of the myriad human predilections, pathos, and emotions. Sensitive, yet, colourful and working with oils the artist experiments with a profusion of earthly tones along with the brighter shades of red, blue, green and ochres. Her paintings often depict the Sanskrit verses.
