Her practice straddles the fields of Fine Art and Socially Engaged Practice, including an ongoing investigation of their relationship with each other.

Site, context, and circumstance are of fundamental importance and works often emerge in response to personal and social situations. Play, experimentation, and repetition are tools she regularly employs.
