She have been fortunate to work with artists working in diverse media, showcasing fine art in environments that ranged from intimate settings to large public spaces, one-person exhibits to large group events, installations in art galleries and a museum, restaurants, a bank, private homes, a Veterans’ Hall and other commercial spaces. Working sensitively with those involved and placing each work in the best light possible in relation to the whole have been the hallmark of creating harmonious installations. Concurrently, she was involved in developing her own personal fine art photographic work, which was exhibited in one-person and group shows and published here and in Europe. Presently, she is building a new body of work, as she develops skills working with porcelain in the ceramic medium.
