She has participated in many 24hr print projects in Limerick, Cork, Co. Tipperary (Delete Press) and two residencies in Factoria Cultural Aviles, Asturias, Spain. Her own practice in print has led her to work in collaboration with different organisations and disciplines promoting and expanding printmaking methodologies and practices. Her prints are made using many different printmaking techniques. Often beginning with a cyanotype print using objects, plants and the figure to create a base composition. Then layers of relief wood blocks and mono printing are applied intuitively using a colour sense that relates to the print/composition. Sometimes there is a further exploration of the print and how it is presented by using fold techniques and assembling them into artists books.
