She has exhibited her work both regionally and nationally including solo shows at No Globe Exhibition Space in Brooklyn, A.I.R.

Her work has been included in several group and two-person shows at the Islip Art Museum, the Berkshire Botanical Garden (Mass MoCA), the U.S. Botanical Garden, the Peter Fingenstein Gallery, and LaMaMa Galleria in New York City.
