In 2022, she continues to expand the realm of her reach. She started her own studio in San Francisco where she continues to explore motifs and themes of modern surrealism. She was featured in The Art of Banksy, where her work was shown along side Banksy’s original works at the Palace of Fine Art in San Francisco. Her work was also accepted into the prestigious Mirus Gallery in San Francisco as part of Local Legend group show.

In order to foster a deeper connection with the local community, she started a series of art classes to educate the general public about art making and appreciation. She was also featured in local art festivals such as the 23rd Annual How Weird Street Art Fair, where she performed live painting in front of a diverse audience. In November 2022, her work was accepted by International Museum of America and is due to be exhibited in March 2023 in this exhibition “What is Modern Surrealism.” Her influence was also noticed by The Marquis Who’s Who of America, where she will be featured as a prominent artist in their upcoming publication.
