The artist explains her coffee and ink drawings in this way:
"It starts in an intuitive way, where coffee and ink live a life of its own in the drying process, and creates different formations on the paper.I bring the figurative that occured forward by drawing it clearer on the paper. Each drawing has its own saying, which I wish will touch the people who need it.There is also a little red heart that represents life. I only use natural products in my drawings, and my ultimate goal is that it will touch something personal and intimate in the viewer who is experiencing my drawings"
