She is a part of several notable Art exhibitions like YUVA SUMBHAVA of the Raza Foundation (2022). She was an artist in residency for Lawei: A Home for Art,
About the present work she says “The form in back ink can be seen as both representing the Shillong Hill (Lum Shillong) and the traditional thatched roof, seen in the few remaining structures like the King’s house (iing-syiem). The composition doesn’t have a supporting base and apparently does’nt need one as it is in the sky.
The red ‘tapmoh’ (shawl) being a signifier of the title. ”.
