In October 2019 she attended a month-long residency in Switzerland and was invited back to exhibit a large installation that was made during her time there.
Continuing to make and exhibit work she presented her largest project to date: - Paper Cave Anti-Rave, in August 2020. Having to adapt throughout to the on-going COVID situation the project was shown digitally - videos of which can be found on her website and YouTube channel.
