Though her sending-in address remained in Ireland throughout, she exhibited with a Newlyn title in 1896, and in the same year The Chantrey Bequest purchased The Morning Bath (RA, 1896).
She studied in the Summer classes of 1894 and 1895 with Norman GARSTIN, though there is no specific information about her visit/s to Cornwall. By 1935 she had moved to Wellington, New Zealand, but returned home to Thomastown by 1941, where she died on 11 October of that year, age 83.
