Over the last 10 years she has worked principally in creating work for children’s TV and media, including
the animated series, Joe and Jack (RTÉ) and Castle Farm (Milkshake). She currently has two series in pre-development with Brown Bag Films, Dublin and King Rollo, UK and has just illustrated five stories for the CBeebies Storytime App, (downloadable free from CBeebies website) Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Nian and The Elephant and The Mouse.
