At NAG in early 1926 the artist began exhibiting, and followed this with entries to the winter exhibition. She first exhibited in 1927 in St Ives, whilst living in Edinburgh (Tovey), and moved to Polperro in 1932, joining STISA. By the time of her 1936 RA success she had again moved, this time to Bridport in Dorset. Her work is not referred to in St Ives after 1940.
