Souter's paintings draw inspiration from her surroundings. Her subject matter includes landscapes, still lives, abattoir paintings, fish, aeroplanes and war. Stylistically, her work has ranged from abstraction to realism over the past five decades of her career. Souter's work in her late years concerned with man's exploitation of landscape for oil, power and industry. Souter worked predominantly in oil paints but also with a variety of other materials such as paper and aluminium.

Over the years, Souter had been the recipient of numerous awards including The Gainey Award in 1976, The Grand Prix International D'Art Contemporain, the Monaco Award in 1977, the Landscape Prize, EVA, Limerick in 1984 and was elected Saoithe by Aosdána in 2008. She lived and worked on Achill Island.
