She is currently undertaking a PhD. at University of Leeds and continuing to curate national and international artists through the Artist Book Collective.Her own work investigates ideas of the crossover between art, artefact and interpretation within text, image and object. She produces new paper based and artist book works to explore this, with the outcomes often resembling or mimicking museum style objects which also have an element of tactile or interactive qualities.
