Beatrix's practice casts a diverse subject matter into an equally wide net of media. 
She explores themes and ideas seemingly disparate as surrealism, androgyny, mysticism, New Romanticism, eroticism and athleticism, which she believes form a meaningful lattice of coincidence in the cultural imaginary.
 
 She believes that passé abstractions such as beauty, virtuosity and showmanship have a shifting but continuing validity. ​​​​​​​
No matter the medium she works in, she sees a common thread in her approach to art making: as generating landscapes of possibility.
Her creative energy invests itself in perishable materials of oil paint, wooden board and linen canvas, found scraps and her own sculpture; in the galvanised digital realm: filming, motion graphics and animation; and in the corporeal realm of calisthenics.
She lives and makes work in Leeds.
