A common practice in her artwork is the connection of memory to objects and the use of the casting process. Her artwork tends to comment on, if not interrogate, aspects of memory, identity, class, and environmental issues. How we remember, what we choose to remember, what we choose to forget, how authentic these memories are, and how memory connects to one’s topographical environment are important questions in her work.
