She describes her artwork as "the computer manipulation of colour images derived originally through traditional photographic processes, which are then either printed or projected directly from the computer." She continues, "By assimilating traditional boundaries between the inside and the outside of the body, the real and unreal with the humorous, sexy, and vulnerable, produce artwork, both moving and still, that resonates with the seductive yet alienating encounter of the body as/vs technology."
