She has taken part in international workshops in Japan and Germany. She has work in private collections in America, Spain, France, Germany and New Zealand.
In 1998 she was commissioned by South East Arts for three 5 ft figures which were exhibited in Petworth House in Sussex. She was also selected for the Discerning Eye exhibition in the Mall Gallery, London and the Fisher Award in New Zealand.

She works in clay including T Material and coloured porcelain. Each piece is hand-built and unique. They are fired in a gas kiln to 1260 ˚C. Her work is mainly abstract / figurative and is based on ideas about solitude and the interaction between people. She is happy to accept commissions.
