Her art explores an ongoing love of nature and astronomy, featuring birds, trees, starry night skies and mountainous winter landscapes, as well as her recent nature-inspired abstract paintings.

Her work frequently has a quiet, dream-like quality and a subtle or muted colour palette, sometimes with the addition of an occasional hit of bright colour. Look closely and you’ll often find areas of fine detail and decorative pattern. She also enjoys the strong graphic quality of black and white, and produces many monochromatic works on paper alongside her paintings on canvas and wood.
