The work created by Ciriaco generally consists of digital and analog portraits but recently she has been able to find footing through other mediums such as writing and film. Through this exploration, Ciriaco is translating her visions inspired by the transitional experience as an immigrant artist evolving in New York City Her most recent ongoing series, "RED" aims to collectively display her fixation for the appearance of the color red. It is constantly portrayed in her photographic work as it represents the passion and pain in her personal narrative.
