Her work pursues shifts in environmental patterns, that is, the cycle from birth to maturity to death, and then to life again. Shapes, movement, color, and texture are predominant in her imagery. Her early prints concentrated on large triptych and quadriptych images. Then she began pursuing monotypes, also in triptych formats. Currently, she is developing large 38" x 50" monoprints combo collagraphs. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
