A career as a tabletop designer ignited her interest in still life and often her mystical figures are seen combined with arrangements of food, fruit, and flowers. Her work has been featured on wine labels, promotional posters and university brochures.
She has exhibited throughout the Southeast and has served as an artist in the schools through the Greenhill Center for North Carolina Art. Now included in many private collections, her work ranges from simple black and white monoprints to commissioned portraiture in her own individualistic style.
Her busy life is often reflected in the energy seen in her compositions, especially those of children. Her life is a primary source of inspiration as well as her travels to Italy and different coastal areas.
