Her work has taken a new direction since incorporating digital imaging and printing into her practice. She writes:
“Digital technology is allowing and tempting me to go down paths I might otherwise ignore or perhaps not even see. I was being repetitive in my painted silks, needing a new language to try. Having found it, my old language of painting has a different meaning now: I can see its value in my work. Trying the new helps to redefine the old.
