Her passion for making site-specific environmental installations and showing art works beyond the confines of the gallery lead her to a variety of opportunities to create art works in the natural environment or in buildings of interest. From isolated arid locations such as the ancient dry lake bed of Lake George in ACT Australia, to the deserts in South Australia, the exposed ragged cliff tops above Bondi Beach in Sydney, to the wet lush rural garden at Lowood Gallery in Cumbria, UK, in the centre of the lakes at University of Western Sydney to the Botanic Gardens in Kiev, Ukraine, to the isolated rugged beauty of the decommissioned quarries in the Mendips, UK, to the volcanic coastal ledges at Tufia in the Gran Canaria, Spain, to name a few. Buildings of interest include industrial settings such as the Coal Loader on Sydney Harbour to the medieval Bargate Monument Gallery in Southampton and the Farnham Parish Church in Surrey, UK.

“Through site-specific environmental installations and photography I seek to challenge the predictability of expectations & ‘cultural homogeneity’. My art practice is inspired by the complexities, equilibrium and fragility of the natural environment and by the ways in which our man-made systems work within, or in opposition to, these natural systems. The focus of my practice is the concept of transition, including notions of unpredictability, vulnerability, deterioration and ephemerality. It is informed by issues relating to human ecology, cultural displacement, consumption and materialism”.
