She is currently an adjunct professor of art at Culver Stockton College in Canton, MO. She has taken art workshops at Chicago Art Institute Teachers Forum and the Savannah College of Art and Design. She continues to study and experiment with many media. She has won awards in local and state competitions and has had work in multiple juried exhibitions, including the Mary Oakley Show and the Quad State show at the Quincy Art Center, the St. Louis Artists Guild where she was an Artist Section member, the Hannibal Original show, the Missouri State Fair Art Competition Top Fifty Professional Show, the Raintree Annual Art show and the Foundry Art Gallery in St. Charles, MO.
