Her paintings are in hundreds of public and private collections, including a 1% for Art Commission for the library of the Oregon Institute of Technology and the American Embassy in Honduras.

She has been teaching watercolor to adults for almost thirty years. She has taught outdoor workshops every summer since the late 70's and in the winter teaches a number of classes on Orcas Island and in Friday Harbor, Bellingham, Edmonds and Seattle.

Her greatest joy in teaching is watching students discover aspects of themselves and learn to express themselves in new ways.
