Huston shows meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship in her work, employing a palette of rich hues in a dense tonal structure. Her painterly ability, combined with an air of the disjointed, a penchant for scenes of frozen movement and her choice of exotic subject matter - ranging from lithe plant forms, flowers and fruits to strange figures, nudes and castles in desolate landscapes - lend Huston's work a sense of the disembodiment and mystery evocative of dream sequences.
