Drawing upon personal experience, her work has explored themes of identity, dislocation and journeys. Her physical environment, from the skeletal forms of the New Zealand hills to the rich textural diversity of the Australian bush, continues to be a major inspiration. The latter has been a focus for her latest mixed media works.
