About her work, she says:
"Many artworks are based on the continuous study and experience of nature. Nature is at the root of art's subject matter and has provided us with infinite possibilities of creation. Under the theme of Plant images, my works contain various meanings and symbols to express the author's memories of their daily lives. Plants change their form at each stage of creation: seed, plants sprout, spread roots and bloom. this course of change gives rise th fantasy about unpredictable organisms and organic forms. In my work, I actively express the organic movements of plants with their mysterious colours and constantly changing forms, crating texture with the materiality and transparency of silicone. I always try to express the living in my work so most of my pieces have rich colours and unique shapes."
