In acrylic paintings, Shikha's work has moved between abstract and non-objective. She favors non objective abstract art over realistic paintings, stressing on the balanced composition of color and form to communicate her ideas. Themes such as nature and the spiritual are consistent undercurrents in her works, although the casual observer will be hard pressed to see any recognizable symbols. Another consistent aspect of her work is the use of multiple canvases to tell a continuing story. Several works, such as Elements, require the four canvases to be seen together to understand the meaning of the various transitions, and how the contrast is created between different forms and colors.
