Several of her finest subjects achieve an independent complexity in their rugged, hearty dignity.”

Her paintings are in collections in Australia and the United States.
She has taught painting and drawing in pastels, watercolor, oil and acrylics for over fifteen years to adults and children of all levels and art history lectures in the Philadelphia area.
