She creates large scale dance and sound works in busy urban spaces, conducting social experiments amongst the busy flow of pedestrian traffic while exposing artistic process and practice to new and extensive audiences.
Her most notable public space works include ‘The Stance’ (Metro Arts Slipstream Festival QLD 2015, Australian Performing Arts Market 2016, Junction Arts Festival TAS & Liveworks NSW 2016) and award winning work ‘fifteen’ (Next Wave Festival VIC 2012 & Brisbane Festival QLD 2012).

Her choreographic style has evolved from her postgraduate research body language and she has an ongoing interest in the relationship between psychology and art.
