She has shown at the Centro do Mar Whaling Museum in Horta, Faial, Azores, the Centro Cultural in Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel, Azores, Amy Simon Fine Art in Westport, CN, the Euphrat Museum in Cupertino, CA, Porter Troupe Gallery in San Diego, Stephen Wirtz Gallery, Walter & Mcbean Gallery, and Southern Exposure in San Francisco. Her work is in the collection of the Capelinhos museum in Faial, Azores, Portugal as well as private collections. She recently retired after nineteen years of teaching in the Department of Art and Art History at San Jose State University.
