She is also known to create landscape paintings, hand-painted saws and custom work. Her work is often large-scale and striking, with strong use of texture, contrast, tones and colour. She is fascinated by topics surrounding the body and mental health, her work typically shining a light on stereotypical ‘imperfections’ and ‘flaws’. Her aim is to address and challenge society’s expectations and perceptions of normality, perfection and beauty. She explores the question “what makes us who we are?” in various ways throughout her work. The mediums she specialises in is acrylic paint, colour pencil and alginate plaster casting.
