She has been drawing webcomics since 2007 and enjoys a large following on her Facebook page and Instagram, Evacomics. Her seminal work "Eva, Kopi and Matcha" (2014) depicts and satirises cultural differences between Singapore and Japan and has been translated into Bahasa Indonesia and Vietnamese. Her second book "Eva Goes Solo" (2016) documents her experiences adapting to life in Japan where she lived for some years. Her third book "Eva, Kopi and Matcha 2.0" was released in 2017, extending comparisons to more countries like US, Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia. Her latest book "A Manga Lover's Tokyo Travel Guide" is released worldwide in 2019 with Tuttle, a publisher renowned for Asian inspired books. Eva was a mentor for comics drawing on OKTO’s Knockout Carnival and has appeared in newspapers such as Zaobao, The Straits Times, The Sun, The New Straits Times, and The Star. Her work on cultural differences attracted an interview for Nippon Steel and Sumitomo Metal’s staff magazine as well as appearing in various overseas magazines such as Publisher's Weekly (US) and Eye-Ai (Japan). Eva was also an invited speaker at conventions such as the Singapore Toy Game Comics Convention, Comic Fiesta in Kuala Lumpur, and Popcon Asia in Jakarta.
