Signalling back to her history in dance, her work is centred around the body often adopting choreographic tools and strategies from dance as a means to explore the performativity of image-making.

Her work has been exhibited in the UK and internationally, in group and solo exhibitions at institutions and festivals such as Wilhelm-Hack-Museum (DE), Museum of London (UK), Hanes Art Gallery (USA), Peckham 24 (UK), A Performance Affair (BG), Summerhall (UK) & The Nunnery Gallery (UK).
