There have been 64 solo exhibitions of her works and many more group exhibitions. She is represented in collections such as the Art Gallery of Western Australia, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, The Australian National Gallery, the Reserve Bank of Australia, the University of Texas and the Vatican Art Collection.
