The location of the Gallery is a bit unusual place but after walking through the works I realized the aptness. Her works easily leads us to believe that they are an ornithological study but they have deep roots of human character (that are bought out slowly). The paintings are related to extinct exotic bird species and mythic unicorn, we can infer humaneness of it to our own lives of having lofty dreams as oppose to what reality is. 

In terms of technical skills the handle of watercolor medium is jaw-dropping (considering the she works in really large format). The use of negative space and fresh vibrant colors bring out the notion of extinction and existence. 

Hope we see your bigger paintings in your next show, soon!
