Her work is so unassumingly spectacular. She takes typically mundane elements in our everyday environment and in a very quiet way reveals how exceptional they are. I first saw her work at the Seventeen gallery, prostate London. They have a permanently installed piece of hers embedded in the floor.  It looks very much like paint that may have dripped from the ceiling. Upon closer inspection, sale it is revealed to be inlaid mother of pearl. That is the kind of double take that all of her work does to you. Its like a readymade met a new maker. Take a look at the below images  The rawl plugs are all made of jasper, nurse black onyx, red carnelian, garnet and brown goldstone.  “Made Good” – the screw in the wall is made of coral, black onyx, 18 carat white gold, a diamond in the center of the cross-hairs and silver.  Her work is being shown at the V&A for their Out of the Ordinary: Spectacular Craft show. Her work is well situated among a group of other exceptional artists.
