In 2018 her work was included in the Too Much Truth Exhibition. in Wellington, New Zealand, an exhibition of art works opposing sexploitation.

D’s work utilises rubbish as well as natural materials and is often confronting, challenging and playful with language. When Isla and D kayaked out to Swan Island at the southern end of Lake Pedder in early summer last year – playful results emerged with ti tree and banksia roots – reminiscent of the triffids.
