I exhibited in countless exhibitions all over the country and in many international exhibitions, from Germany to Singapore, Sweden, Australia and China. I have taught at the Neighborhood Art House, have been an adjunct at Mercyhurst College and Gannon University and was the Artist in Residence at the Cathedral Center, Erie, PA.

I received two Mid Atlantic Artist Residences through the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation at the Keystone Blind Association, Sharon, PA in May-August 2003-2004. In 2005 she received a Kellogg’s Foundation Artist Residency in Battle Creek, MI. I received three Pennsylvania Partner in the Arts Grants for the Neighborhood Art House in Erie, PA 2005, 2006 and 2008. I received the Distinguished Alumni Award in the Art from Edinboro University in 2005.
