Association, North Shore Arts Association, Academic Artists Association,

judges for art groups. Some of her awards include the “Aldro Hibbard
Award” (NSAA), the “Carl Peters Prize” (RAA), the “Sharon Ortlip Award”
(Salmagundi Club), the “Juror’s Choice Award" (AAA) and the “Silver
Medal Award” (RAA). Her work appears in the book 
The Best of Acrylic
. A feature article about her appeared in the American Artist magazine.
