She has the desire and capacity to make work that reflects on important contemporary issues such as gender equality, military occupation, female identity in the forces, and the long-term consequences of armed conflict.

Her first solo show, The White Picture, documented the lives of women serving in the British Army, and was exhibited at The Oxo Gallery, London, in 2012. Her recent series Soldier is featured in the major exhibition No Man’s Land: Women’s Photography and the First World War, which premiered at Impressions Gallery, Bradford and completed a two year national tour.

She is the founder of the safety training movement ROAAAR and co-founded Powering the Matriarchy Together (P.M.T), Birmingham’s pioneering festival celebrating womxn and non-binary people. She is also the recent recipient of a Developing Your Creative Practice grant from Arts Council England to explore film processes and photographic-based research and create a safe place for researching personal memories and archives which will require reflection on her military past to enable her journey as a more critically engaged artist.
