During a trip to Bali, Indonesia in 2011, she felt in love with the beauty of the images taken and started to take her camera everywhere. Being exposed to different languages and cultures ever since childhood made her become extremely aware of her surroundings and she developed a particular taste for street photography and documentary. The choice of unique characters and subcultures are also imminent in her work. Her photographic style features strong contrasts and extremely bright colors.
