Crossing various art forms she uses drawing, painting, film and installation to develop the narrative and explore the relationship between subject and place. Recent projects stem from journeys around Iceland and a sailing expedition around Svalbard, resulting in an exhibition with film maker Richard Ashrowan. Using large scale installations depicting the undercurrents and at Verksmidjan, Hjalteri, a disused herring factory in the north of Iceland, now run by an artists‘ collective. She collaborates with artists of different disciplines in multi media projects, including writer Robert Macfarlane, poet Ian Stephen, musician Aidan O’Rourke. In 2015 in partnership with An Lanntair arts centre, she created a multi media event with visual arts and performance as part of the art centre's 30th anniversary and Stornoway Ports Authority 100 year anniversary. She runs Heriot Toun Studio, a multi purpose award winning residential arts space in the Scottish Borders.  She also shows experimental work in a converted horse box which she trails around rural areas to show in unexpected places.
