She exhibits throughout Maine, and her work as been shown in many regional and national juried shows. Currently she shows her work in Maine at Elizabeth Moss Gallery in Falmouth, The Turtle Gallery in Deer Isle, The Gallery at Somes Sound in Mt. Desert, and George Marshall Store Gallery in York. Her paintings have been selected for fourteen public art projects through the Maine Arts Commission Percent for Art Program, including six large-scale triptychs at the Penobscot Judicial Center in Bangor.
