It looks like she makes models of a place (a neighborhood in these examples) and then proceeds to paint a series of stories about the people who live or visit there. Many of the paintings are relatively small and I imagine they perfectly convey the intimacy of her character's private lives. She also does some very small paintings, less than 2 inches square.
