In 2003 she was awarded the Arts Foundation Fellowship for her work with textiles. She lectures and exhibits in the UK, Europe and Japan. She is currently working with scientists exploring Nanotechnology, exhibiting and interpreting their electron microscopic images, contributing through her practice to demystifying nano science.
