She was awarded the RSA Jervis-Chalmers prize (2022) and the Iain Eadie award (2020).

Within her practice she explores perceptions of memory and place. Through intentional improvisation she creates atmospheric landscapes that shift between photography and painting, evoking feelings of familiarity within the abstract. Paintings consists of Contrasting layers ranging from organic matter structured patterns and rock like formations. These elements both represent longevity and decay physically, and symbolise the marking of time as well as its fragility. Working primarily on paper reflects the ephemeral context of her work. Her work exists in private and public collections in the UK.
