Her work is included in public and private collections around the world, including Brazil, United States, Singapore, and China.

She is a member at South Bay Artist Collective and Foundation of Local Artists (FOLA) in California.
Words she lives by: "I paint colorfully to show the world the positive influence of colors and the power of strokes, creating an imaginary scenario based on nature and freedom state of mind."
