FBA Futures is the UK’s biggest annual survey of emerging contemporary figurative art, mapping new practices and ideas of representation and draughtsmanship.

41 artists and over 80 works were presented in the largest exhibition of FBA Futures since it began in 2012.

She works with wild plants and soil through experimental printing, ceramics, and photographic process.

Her work unites ecology and contemporary art practice and in her printing processes describes the work as “getting the plants to draw themselves”.

Selected for the FBA Futures exhibition was one print entitled ‘Wild Vegetation’ and a ceramic bowl, ‘Fine Ferns and Wild Plants in Porcelain’.
