Working between painting, drawing and printmaking, with each discipline informing the other, the inner structure of Crowe's work is often concerned with memory and association, timelessness and fragility, moving towards a metaphysical understanding of the nature of experience, as well as nature itself, real and transmuted. A profound quietude embodies her work, as her subjects, whether formal sitters or trees in a dusk winterscape, resonate Crowe's own continuous, layered journey of discovery, at once muted and illuminated.

Crowe's collaborations with other artists and projects envelope further diverse media. She has worked with Dovecot Tapestry Studios on several significant commissions, including a monumental 40 metre long tapestry for Leathersellers' Hall in the City of London, installed in 2017. Other collaborations have been with the opera singer Matthew Rose on a production of Schubert's song cycle Winterreise at Snape Maltings, Suffolk and London's Wigmore Hall in 2017, which projected a 70 minute video of Crowe‘s winter paintings; and with the poet Christine de Luca for the exhibition Another Time, Another Place held at The Scottish Gallery in 2021. In summer 2021 a performance of Thea Musgrave's Trumpet Concerto for Alison Balsom, a composition inspired by five of Crowe's paintings, was performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
