Forsey is an interdisciplinary process-based creator and writer. Her practice is rooted in storytelling, fascination with the built environment, seeking beauty in lapsed spaces, and aleatory outputs.

Her work employs digital strategies and analog processes that investigate the possibilities of what photography can be, and drone photography to examine human activity on the landscape. In 2022, her series Urban Remains, showcasing abandoned spaces of our cultural past was installed in Gallery Stratford’s, Art in the Trees, and in 2023 her drone studies and writing about Guelph Lake were included in Another Earth’s photographic survey What Makes a Lake? Tracing Movement. 

Her work has been shown in Canada, the U.S. and abroad, as well as collaboratively in the Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival, and Scotiabank Nuit Blanche (Toronto).

She is a member of the urbex photography collective TLR Club, and is the Photography Technician at the University of Guelph.
