She was born in England but has lived and worked in the United States, Germany, and Norway. Her home and studio practice is in Wales. Ingham is an artist that became a filmmaker (C4, BFI, BBC, worldwide festivals like Berlin) that then returned to arts practice as an interdisciplinary artist. Her practice is broadly positioned across three main fields of exploration: art and the biological sciences, art and environmental sciences, identity and subjectivity in relation to themes of migration, dislocation and belonging.
