Her previous titles include Choosing My First Job (2018), Belonging (2018), Going to Church (2017) and A Day at The Beach (2016). Part of her comic strip It’s All About Choice from All Is Not Well (2017) was featured in The Inking Woman, Myriad Editions 2018. Her work is characterised by clear lines and flat colours, often showing observations of everyday people in everyday places.
