Her work has been featured in the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami, Florida, Paradice Palase in Brooklyn, NY, Soft Times Gallery in San Francisco, CA, IS Projects in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. Prestigious awards include the South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship in 2019. Her work is part of the permanent collection for the state of Utah.
