In 2016, she began taRka, a multi-media collaboration project. She has just released ‘Water Print’ by Myrcury with Enigma Curry. Her early independent albums were created with musicians Agitation & Astarte 23, and Dub Therapie.

She joined Theatre in the Rough, a youth advocacy group in 1998, co-founded Surrey Muse in 2011, and by 2016, in combination with launching Purple Poppy Press, a digital publisher, she published a second collection of poems with lyrics and drawings titled ‘These Tales Are True’.
