In her fisrts major exhibition called Ritual Memories wich held in Berlin, April 2011, she utilizes classical portraiture as a departure point for exploring the cross-sections between identity construction and spirituality. Her subjects typically appear shirtless or nude, stylized with accessories denoting ritual and devotion, though the signification can rarely be assigned to one single faith.

Her costumes serve as appendages to the bodies of her subjects, and can take the form of carnal matter (fish, birds, badminton balls and worms have all been used) or traditional ritual cloths and silk. With their stern gaze and often classical poses, the works call to mind early Netherlandish portraiture. In sum, they seem to have emerged from some parallel universe, spirits from an after-life that is markedly human in design.
