She is also the creator of the weekly comic strip, Things That I’ve Learnt, in The Observer. Her debut illustrated fiction novel, They Didn’t Teach THIS in Worm School! published by Walker Books was described by her German publisher, Königskinder as “a philosophical essay on friendship”. Her work is an ongoing investigation into what it means to be human and she often communicates her ideas using anthropomorphism, making her stories accessible to audiences of different ages and backgrounds. Lia has the ability to communicate complex emotional relationships, simply and with a warm sense of humour.
