In 1992, she was granted a United States Patent for a Process For Creating Artworks By Application Of Crayon And Ink.  Her oil paintings were exhibited at the American Academy of Equine Art in Lexington, Kentucky in 1995 and 1996.  Her work has appeared on the cover of The Chronicle of the Horse many times.  And, in 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2007, she was appointed the Official Artist for the International Gold Cup Races, Great Meadow, Virginia.  In 2000 and 2002 she was the official artist for the Upperville Horse Show in Upperville, Virginia.
