She was the recipient of the BRAW Bologna Ragazzi Opera Prima Award for her debut picture book The Museum of Me and has been twice nominated for the Carnegie Medal and shortlisted for the World Illustration Awards. She has illustrated a number of books for children and is largely inspired by folk art, Modernist picture books and travel.
