She continued to work in conjunction with the gallery for a further four years, whilst exhibiting and concentrating on her studies.

On completion of her degree Lily was awarded the Lionel Gell Traveling Scholarship, and moved to Berlin where she is currently working on several solo, and collaborative projects.
