Her inspiration is from nature and some folk artworks. She thinks folk artists all have magic energy from nature. They do not have professional and academic art experiences but they all have amazing energy to create marvellous and vivid artworks. 

She is always exploring how she could work and create closer to the fields, so she tried to work and learn about permaculture on small organic farms in different parts of the UK and made random creations using the materials available on the farms. For this reason, she needs to follow the season, each time she can find the material is different; When she goes back to the city, she will collect dry garbage and second-hand clothes to make paper toys and costumes, which she will first present in the form of illustrations, and then make physical objects. she has self-publishing small zine “Suck Green and See” to collect all her nature work stories, and she has made it to the third issue.
