She had a solo exhibit at Stageworks Theater, in conjunction with In the Time of the Butterflies. She is a participating artist in St. Pete's annual Exquisite Corpse Games.

Her different techniques such as oil, acrylic and pastels are the means to construct surrealism, magic realism, reflexive and spiritual worlds.
