The artist exhibited two paintings at NAG in 1937. Her address was in Newquay, and she exhibited at SWA over the following two years. Three of her works are in the art collection held by Newquay Hospital, where the information given shows that she was painting actively in that area of Cornwall throughout the 1950s.
Pearce's work shows mastery of drawing and painting, illustrating complex landscapes but with the touch of the impressionist. She was clearly an accomplished painter.
