She has exhibited her work in 27 solo exhibitions in museums and art galleries in the United States and Japan. Her ceramic sculpture has been included in over 200 international group shows. In 1997 was an invited guest artist at the Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park, in Japan, where she created her artwork and later traveled throughout the country for two months.

Her most ambitious work in ceramic will soon be featured in a vast, permanent public commission, for the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority for the new Times Square Subway Station in New York City.
