Her works are also held in many private collections throughout the world, including the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Orthopaedic Division; the chambers of the Honorable Vice-Chancellor Jack B. Jacobs in Wilmington, Delaware; Astra-Zeneca Pharmaceutical in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania; and of Mayor Eva Galambos at Sandy Springs City Hall in suburban Atlanta. She has also been a returning juror for the Atlanta Arts Festival, the Virginia Highland Festival and the International Art Competition of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
