She is featured in Peter Gershon’s book Collision: The Contemporary Art Scene in Houston, 1972-1985. In a career that has spanned over 40 years, she has championed the necessity of safe, affordable, working art studio space. Working with developer Jon Deal, she was a key founding artist in establishing Winter Street Studios. Her art is linked to the abstract expressionist tradition and her works reflects her inspiration from her travels abroad. She considers herself an abstract painter and mixed media artist, working on canvas, paper, and board of all sizes. Never titling her work, her goal is to inspire the viewer in exploring her art as a jumping off point and bringing their own experiences into the work.
