Pakradooni incorporates methods of printmaking into sculpture, installation, and more traditionally editioned prints.

She was awarded fellowships and residencies by University of Texas at Austin, Women’s Studio Workshop, Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, AS220, and the Virginia Commonwealth University.

Art multiples, repetition, and layering are a shared language between her visual and aural work. Her work emphasizes the slippage of form between the truly physical vestiges of ruins and the fantastical of half-rendered computer generated imagery.
