The artist was a student at the Falmouth College of Art, and graduated in 1988, following up her degree with further studies at the Slade. She is a recognised figure in the art world since becoming a nominee for the Turner Prize (1998). Living now primarily in Berlin, her visual work is largely with film and filmography, though it includes drawing, painting and writings as well ('asides').
A solo show of her work was mounted in 2005 by the Tate St Ives.
