In addition she was a student resident at The New York Studio School where she worked with second generation abstract expressionists: Charles Cajori, Mercedes Matters, and Rosemarie Beck.  Her artwork has been exhibited across the country with solo shows in New York City, Philadelphia, Virginia, and Minnesota. Internationally she has exhibited at Museo de Arte Moderno in Bogota Colombia in a show titled: Nine New York Painters.  Recently her work was included in the Washington Project for the Arts SELECT 2013, a group exhibition titled In Flux at Seton Hall University in New Jersey, and a National Juried exhibition at Addams State University titled: Squared: An Interpretive Exhibition.
