“She has been fortunate to have had exhibited in New York, Florida, and more prominently, in California.

“As a member of the Central Coast Art Association during her time in California, she had a number of two-artist and group exhibitions in the Monterey area as well as a solo exhibition at Seaside.

“A few years ago she settled in Cambridgeshire where she was finally able to start focusing on art fully and has since taken part in group exhibitions with other local artists.”
