Cicchini's photography work has been described as "emotive" and "narrative", some of which can be "dark and provoking" yet at the same time "peaceful and beautiful". Her work has received numerous industry awards and accolades, and has been published in various art and fashion magazines both nationally and internationally.
Shann Lawrence Creative, describes the work - "The images float you away on a fantasy, they take you to those places you’ve always wanted to see. They’re serene, still, dreamlike; but just when you settle into their relaxed beauty, you suddenly realise that there is something hiding in each of them that makes you stop and think, so that you wonder whether you should be just a little bit afraid of what lies within. There are mythologies that hide within these photographs, sirens to lure us to a beautiful doom, nestled beneath stunning perfection"
In 2018, for the fourth consecutive year, Cicchini was awarded the the AIPP ACT Illustrative Photographer of the Year, and in 2017 AIPP ACT Portrait Photographer of the Year, previously also awarded in 2015.
