She has been featured in multiple group shows at The King's Art complex as well as various galleries in NYC and Columbus, Ohio. She is the winner of the Lowell Tolstedt DRAWING PRIZE and the May and Samuel Rudin Foundation Scholarship. She has obtained her BFA in Fine Arts from Columbus College of Art & Design and a MFA from NYU.
