Her interest in literature and novels while in high school was what instigated it. She always found the characters of Dostoyevsky, Gogol and Balzac interesting. There are so many things about herself that she see in those characters. She tried to touch the internal body and soul by focusing on the themes of internal fear, psychological trauma, half human half animal figures, death, birth, violence and morality.
