By 1917 she had been appointed a part-time tutor at the School while still studying and by 1920 her position became permanent. She spent the next seven years in London teaching and earning a living as an illustrator of children's books and a poster designer. Her work included posters for London Underground, an example of which is in the London Transport Museum. In 1927 the year of her first RA exhibit, she married and moved to a farm in Lincolnshire.
