Her current studio practice focuses on the idea of the multiplicity of fragmented storytelling, where connections and conclusions are not definitive, but where the focus is instead placed on the numerous possibilities of what the story can be. These stories are both non-linear and wordless. Ideally, this form of storytelling serves as an exploratory narrative, where the viewer/reader analyzes the given images, actively discovering and piecing together their own narrative. By filling in the gaps between the images, the viewer can assign language and formulate a cohesive story based on their own assumptions and ideas. The images presented in her work therefore exist as fragments that have the potential to be synthesized into a whole, not as told by herself, but as completed by the viewer.
