Other shows include The Ohio Printmakers Show, where she received honorable mention in printmaking; Art Association Show (New Rochelle, NY); Art On The Mountain (Wilmington, VT) and the White Plains, NY Outdoor Art Show where she received honorable mention in printmaking.

One of her monoprints was chosen Best-in-Show at the Hilton Head Plantation exhibit. Her watercolor, the Victorian Wedding Dress won Best in Show (The Golden Ear Award) at Art League of Hilton Heads Metamorphosis Show in 2011″.
She has worked as an art teacher in the Mad River-Green Public Schools (Springfield Ohio), the Lancing Iowa Public Schools, Marymount International School,(Rome, Italy), and the Hartsdale School, (Elmsford, NY). She taught art to adults for fourteen years in New York prior to moving to Hilton Head. She is currently teaching at ALHH Academy.
I am currently teaching at ALHH Academy. I feel drawing is an essential tool for expressing your ideas. In my drawing classes, we use man-made and natural objects as our subject matter. We also discover how line, texture, and form create structure on the paper’s surface. I believe if you can write your name, you can draw! Watercolor is an extension of drawing. We just add color and some knowledge of how the medium can change the surface of the paper. I feel everyone should strive for his or her own style and be confident of one’s individual vision in order to achieve one’s own best creative self. I love art, and I love to share my art experience with others.
