Ada is an interdisciplinary artist working primarily with photography and images rendered in print on a variety of surfaces such as plexiglass, gold leaf and paper.

Her work has been featured in The Huffington Post, CBS Philly, Al Dia News, and Telemundo 51 and has been included in the Philadelphia Museum of Art's permanent collection and selected Best Series in the Black and White International Awards.
