Her work depicts the combination of feelings generated by human mind and heart. The true feelings which are not visible to the physical world but felt by the person are brought on the canvas.

Her art beautifully portrays a communication breakdown: the unexpressed, suppressed frustration and anger felt so deeply within, biologically. The works have an undercurrent of calmness and serenity that add to the surrealistic impression to many of her paintings

The artist often chooses to paint in blacks and greys using oil paints. The process of making art has also, a therapeutic relation with the artist. Similarly, her drawings have a skilful use of single continuous lines that make portraits as the end result. The feeling, again, expressed through the intensity of the lines used. The pleasure and the ability to capture the art on canvas also led Harshida to be a passionate about photography and digital art that she is now working with
