After a series of successful projects, she launched her creative consultancy, The Art Wheel Co., aimed to offer clients custom artwork to bring their space to life, as well as working with businesses to add fine arts to their practice.
Her latest series Mother Nature, was featured in a solo exhibition at Coya, a renowned Peruvian restaurant & bar in the Four Seasons Hotel in Dubai.
