She is the winner of the 2008 Design & Art Direction award for outstanding achievement in illustration and book design for the Tate published book 'Sometimes I think Sometimes I am'. She was one of the youngest designers to join the AGI (Alliance Graphique Internationale) and she is the first woman illustrator to be elected Honorary Fellow of the Royal; Designers for Industry (RDI).
Her inspiration lies not only in the visual arts but also in literature and the theatre.
