Her mixed media paintings mainly concentrate on the landscape, often exploring the vivid warm tones of the mountainous area near her catalan home or the more reflective, sombre shades of Sligo, with its ever changing weather and atmosphere, tinted with personal resonances.

Recent work explores themes of memory and place, focusing on specific recurring images. Old buildings by the sea, trees dancing in a storm, deserted beaches ; all resonate with a stark presence. Paint is built up in layers, over time forming a textural, atmospheric vision.
