She began oil painting in 2013, after taking courses at the Ottawa School of Art. One of her pieces, on the interconnectedness of all people around the globe through music and mysticism, was accepted by Carleton University Art Gallery (Ottawa) and displayed in January 2017. Three other pieces were selected for display in an art exhibition, held at the Public Service Alliance of Canada, in September 2017. These particular paintings expressed why we, as human beings, must respect our planet, to have a meaningful life. Additionally, three other pieces, on the subject of Humanity, were accepted and exhibited at Gallery 1313 in Toronto, in February 2019.
Furthermore, in April 2019, through an art competition, one of her pieces was selected by Oshawa Art Association and exhibited at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa. Then in August 2020, Carleton Art Gallery asked her to give them an artwork concerning awareness of sexual assault and sexual violence. This painting was shown at the Gallery’s Virtual Art Exhibition in Sep. 2020.
Her recent painting, HOPE, dedicated to the Woman, Life, Freedom Movement in Iran was exhibited at the Toronto Metropolitan University on March 8, 2023.
