Ponce's inspiration comes from a variety of sources, from repression, anxiety and anger to love, admiration and contemplation. She uses metaphoric language to convey the complexity of the subject matter, something explicitness cannot convey. Her work gravitates from the Poetic to the Political maintaining a love for the crafted imagery and audio.
