I was invited to take part in the 40th anniversary of the ASMCF annual conference on the theme of The Transnational City and spoke at the 'Ground Up' roundtable at ULIP and The American University of Paris (AUP). I shared projects from my collective Sans plus Attendre, my friend and colleague Anita Pouchard Serra as well as my graphic novel in progress A Journey to Motherhood. It was fascinating to hear about people's involvement in the city and their ideas about how to make it more adaptable and open to different cultures and languages.
I participated to this panel chaired and organised by Dr. Sarah Lightman alongside wonderful comics artists presenting their work on the subject of maternity.
Prints from books Toddler Moments and Double Trouble are currently being exhibited at the beautiful Coffee + Beer in Clifton, Bristol.
I was invited to present my work to the public at the second event of Laydeez do Comics in Bristol. This event was chaired by artist and graphic novelist Emma Burleigh.
I was invited to the Night of Ideas event organised by the French Institute in London. This year themes were Europe and the environment. I taught a series of workshops looking at creating mind maps with children and how to highlight the issue of ecology in their city. I also took part in a conference live streamed with other French Institute in Dublin, Brussel and Stockholm.
Like in 2017 I was invited this year to the South Ken Kids Festival organised by the French Institute in London. I taught a series of workshops on habitat and pop-up art and participated to a live drawing event with other illustrators.
I participated to this panel organised by Dr. Sarah Lightman and chaired by Dr. Nicola Streeten alongside 11 comics artists and academics presenting their experience of maternity. I presented two projects: Toddler Moments and A Journey to Motherhood.

I was very pleased to be invited by the French Institute to be invited as part of the line artists for the 20th anniversary of the South Ken Kids Festival. I gave a series of art workshop in a number of French primary schools across London and took part in a live drawing event.
Sans plus Attendre was invited by the French collective Baobab to take part in this exhibition about micro-publication. Taking place at the urban focused bookshop VOLUME in Paris, we contributed by exhibiting my comic series Ma Vie d'Architecte and were pleased to be involved in this discussion exploring new ways to practice and present the architecture discipline.
