Her art is admired for both, its commercial as well as critical value and is prized possession for art collectors and investors.

Distinguishing Features:-
The artwork is oil on hardboard. It is ready to hang, framed in rustic cane or timber wood. Her distinguishing skill of relief effect that creates projection from surface, gives a sculpted texture to the colourful images. This feature amazingly enlivens the expressions.

A protective coating prevents weathering effect, fading of artwork. It resists moisture and gives long life.
