Her work combines traditional process- based techniques and fine art applications, with a modern discipline. ​Her work has been shown in regional group and solo shows and she holds awards from the Carnegie Art Center and NYS Sheep and Wool. Her work can be found in collections in the United States, Canada and Australia.
