She has been awarded several international artist residencies, including British Council Artist Links China, and the Arts Council England Triangle Artist residency, in Paraguay.
Boggon’s work is investigative in its approach, often playful and at times humorous. It questions the way we see and interpret things by creating alternative and shifting perspectives. Her work is an inquiry into the territory of the real and the imaginary. It often references the past and nostalgia, but in so doing invites us to look more closely and find a poignancy that has a direct relevance to the present. References are made to current situations in contemporary environments and to our commonly used escape routes: fiction, film, dreams, video games, social media, and music.
She has worked as an International Academic, Senior Fine Art Leader and Lecturer at Chelsea, Camberwell and Wimbledon College of Art, London. She was part of the organizing committee for Braziers International Artist Workshop for ten years which brought over 400 artists to the UK from 50 different countries.
