Hosking has exhibited both nationally and internationally and is represented in numerous collections. Working almost exclusively with silver, her work is concerned with rich surface patterns and textures. This reflects her particular concerns for the natural environment, allowing her to echo the forms and motifs found in nature. Her Living Treasures exhibition includes a large scale sculptural work along with a collection of new vessels and jewellery pieces.

As a practitioner and educator, Hosking’s influence has been far-reaching. She established the first jewellery course at Charles Sturt University in 1973, and went on to establish her own studio in Melbourne in 1976 before co-founding Workshop 3000 in 1981. She has lectured at RMIT and is currently the Head of Metal and Jewellery at Monash University, where she is also undertaking a PhD.
