Additionally, she has exhibited her work in group shows since 1987.
After working with sculpture and installation, she began to explore photography and video. One of her first works was exhibited at the Alameda Laboratory , and consisted of a wall and ceiling projection involving filming day-to-day objects with the camera lens enveloped in a mirror prism. The results show abstract images in vivid colors and with much movement.
