Travel is a huge source of inspiration, one of the most significant trips being to India where she was deeply affected by the lack of status among many Indian women particularly in the rural areas. She was also greatly affected by its colours and textures. This prompted a large body of work on her return and continues to reappear in many forms. Colour and texture continue to be strong recurring elements in her work. Stylistically her work is quickly recognized although she frequently crosses over from abstraction to a stylized realism.
