Her photography is about the silence in details and quiet places, as well as the appreciation of the world around her.

Among them were exhibits at the Pacific Grove Art Center, the Carmel Mission and two a tthe Sea Ranch lodge on the Sonoma Coast.  Since 2011, 21 of her images have been selected for display in the facilities of the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.
