Since then her focus has been on painting, drawing, sketching and experimenting with different techniques and various materials to produce works that emphasize color, movement and energy. In 2015 she took her methods to Kabul, Afghanistan. There she has busy re-painting rusting Cold War era wreckage such as tanks, in the process transforming the urban debris of warfare into vibrant and inviting and popular works of public art.
