Her work encompasses reviews, interviews, blog posts, exhibition catalogue texts, chronologies, and historical biographies.

She has also contributed to numerous exhibition catalogues devoted to the artist, including the primary texts published in Calder 1941 (Pace Gallery 2011) and Simplicity of Means: Calder and the Devised Object (O’Hara Gallery 2007).
