She works predominantly in paint, however her many and varied interests mean her practices encompasses printmaking, paper craft, making comics, collaging and creating zines. Although disparate these mediums are united through a characteristic wonky charm which hints at a wry sense of humour and a preoccupation with everyday strangeness.
