Though Miss Van does not put much work on the street these days, her influence as an artist persists. The subject of her work has always been women and femininity, and for this reason she was frequently the token female in every burgeoning graffiti and street art publication. Her sultry characters were met with some backlash from the feminist community and have inadvertently contributed to a stereotype that female street artists tend to only do images of over-sexualized women. Over the years, her characters have matured, evolving into something darker yet still alluring. In various interviews, Miss Van has said that this transformation reflects her personal growth.
