When she considers the sources of the research official and trustworthy, she publishes them on her website with the final work, to increase awareness of the real social impacts of each issue. As well as appearing in various galleries, her work has been shown in public spaces through billboards (including a mobile advan), public performances, street art, postcards and social media projects in both the UK and abroad. She passionately believes that through art it is possible to shape society.
