She has exhibited widely since the 1970s with solo and group exhibitions within Australia and internationally. Her work is represented in public and private collections in Australia and overseas. She has been an office-bearer for arts organisations and has curated exhibitions and managed many art projects and programs, most recently managing InkMasters, Cairns.
