Her style also ranges - from realist to more abstract. She studied at the Royal Academy of Visual Arts in The Hague and received a post-baccalaureate degree in visual communications at the Maryland College of Art and Design. Her work has been exhibited extensively in DC, Maryland, Virginia, New York and New Jersey.
