She has held 6 solo shows, exhibited in Perth and Melbourne, and been a finalist in numerous art awards including the City of Melville Art Awards (overall winner 2021), Printmakers Association of WA Award (winner 1999), the Fremantle Print Award, the Minnawarra Art Award and the City of Busselton Art Award.

Her artwork is held in private and public collections including City of Melville and Eden Floreat Apartments. a finalist in numerous art awards and winner of the City of Melville Art Awards 2021 (acquisitive).

Her recent practice explores the idea of the palimpsest landscape as evocation. Monoprinting (unique state prints) is ideally suited to this deliberate overwriting of images with each layer simultaneously creating and denying form. This process is integral to both the aesthetics and meaning of the work – it speaks of memory, time, loss and renewal.
