Her award winning artwork has appeared in the Museum of Contemporary Craft, Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the Wayne Arts Center, the Mulvane Art Museum, The von Liebig Art Center, Houston Center for Contemporary Crafts, and Rochester Institute of Technology, among other ven- ues, and in numerous books and magazines, including the Lark 500 series, Metalsmith, and on Home & Garden Television. She created the metals program and served as head of the Metalsmithing Department at Spruill Center for the Arts, Atlanta, and was an adjunct professor at the University of Tennessee.
