Boulton takes her inspiration from the Internet, which she uses as a sketchbook. She is drawn to traditional images of the still-life genre, focusing on flora. Her work takes these organic shapes and playfully weaves them into a web of temporal and sequential themes. Within her painted mark making there is an emphasis on line made with an energetic and gestural quality. Areas of flat black paint create windows to frame the layers underneath, where evidence of the paintings development is left exposed. This contrast creates a discordant yet poignant feeling.
