She spent a semester of high school studying painting and drawing at the Cleveland Institute of Art in Lacoste, France, and she spent her junior year of college in Paris, studying art history and painting at the Université de Paris I on a yearlong Duke-Cornell program. Since 2006, her work has been presented at the Sanchez Art Center, Root Division in San Francisco, the Berkeley Art Center, the O'Hanlon Center for the Arts, the Palo Alto Art Center, the Worth Ryder Gallery at UCBerkeley and the Mills College Art Museum.
