Her work ranges in medium from drawing and painting to minimalist installations constructed using existing materials. Her subjects work with line and repetition, emphasizing medium and material within painting and object. Self-imposed rules and boundaries are applied in-process to concentrate the focus of the work on the importance of simplification and structure, and to further investigate the contextual significance of the objects and materials that are used as well as the continuous exploration of line work.
