Music, a play on words, and finding unusual objects for subject matter influence the compositions of her paintings. Many of her paintings are inspired from just one object, from which she proceeds to develop an entire painting. She has exhibited extensively in juried shows, won numerous awards, and has paintings in several corporate and many private collections. A member of the Hunterdon Watercolor Society, she teaches adult art classes. About her work she says, "I hope it makes you smile!"
