In 2016, she teamed up with poet and creative director Katie Bishop to create “Dichotomies” which exhibited at the Beaumont Art Gallery and was subsequently turned into a self-published book and online experience. In 2018, she was commissioned by acclaimed opera singer and artistic director, Heather Pawsey, to create a printed photo series to accompany her on stage during the multimedia a capella show, “Unheard”. An online version of the series can be found here.
