She established herself as an artist for contemporary Australian aboriginal art and lives and works in Brisbane. Her work includes media such as painting, photography, installation, new media and ceramics. In paintings she often uses shades of pink but is also interested in making pottery and ceramics. Her work also reflects on her relationship to skin and she interprets body paint designs and scarification marks in a contemporary manner.

In 2013 she was commissioned by the Brisbane Botanic Gardens to install her sculpture Feast of the Bon-yi in bronze and corten steel there on Mount Coot-tha. The cluster of large nuts and spirit figures visualises the gathering of the tribes. The nut itself symbolises a sacred object, it provides nourishment, rebirth and growth and is the reason why people travelled from so far and wide.
