Dormer was developed from fragments of photographs taken in an old abandoned house in Greece and combined with painted elements. The fragments were built up to create a new imaginary space.

Richard Davey, art critic, describes Moxhay's work, "Combining photography’s literalism with painting’s more ineffable qualities, her mysterious prints create atmospheric spaces that are simultaneously entirely familiar and utterly strange."

Moxhay lives and works in London. After completing a BA Hons in Painting at Chelsea College of Art she went on to The Royal Academy Schools where she graduated with a Post Graduate Diploma in Fine Art in 2007.

She has exhibited widely, both nationally and internationally since 2002 and her work is held in many significant public and private collections including the University of the Arts Collection, The Royal Academy of Arts, The Cooper Union New York, the FSC, the Lodeveans Collection and Oxford University.

She has featured in numerous publications including The Guardian, The Financial Times, A-N Magazine and Art World Magazine and has been profiled and interviewed on the BBC Culture Show. Exhibitions include GSK Contemporary: Earth Art of a Changing World and Constructed Landscapes at the Royal Academy of Arts, Saatchi’s New Sensations/ The Future Can Wait at Victoria House, London and  Human Made Things at Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth. Her animation work has been shown as part of the programme Do Billboards Dream of Electric Screens? on BBC public screens in cities across the UK and she has had two prints commissioned by the Royal Academy of Arts.
