We can feel the Artist's passion for the mystique of the tropics. She incorporated the region’s lush colors and organic forms into her paintings and drawings. Symbolism and the desire to show "mystery" is nowhere more evident than in her canvas that reflect much more than simply a beautifully painted nude. She gave life to an exotic world in a jungles paintings and fantastic visions suspended between dream and reality. The painting Somewhere on Earth is a self-portrait and it shows the artist as a tribe, black woman surrounded by pink lotuses. There is a stranger hidden in the mass of large green leaves. The both are staring at something mysterious and unknown to us.
