She works primary with video, photography and animation.

Espinoza creates surreal environments for her photography which are created from her concepts and imagination. She thoughtfully creates and thinks about every detail for her photoshoots. The act of creating the environment is just as important as taking the photos. Some of her inspiration spawns from installations, masks, folklore, books, surrealism and films. She believes that a great story is key to intriguing the viewer and creating a successful piece of artwork.
