Her practice spans a range of media, including felt cut-outs, painted canvas, drawings, screen-printing, printed fabric and photography. She is a prolific artist having exhibited frequently and extensively throughout Australia and internationally since 1998.

Her work has drawn upon the influences of Surrealism and Dadaism to create images which suggest to the viewer associations with dreams, childhood memories and the sometimes unsettling recollections of life’s experiences.
