She has continued her studies at the Art Students League in New York, the Silvermine Art Center, the Center for Contemporary Printmaking, and the Darien Art Center, as well as with private teachers. She has studied with Robert Reed, Professor of Art at Yale. She also studies and works with Hugh O’Donnell, Professor of Art at Boston University, Constance Kiermaier, a prominent New England artist, Master Printer Marina Anacona, and Master Printer Anthony Kirk, who has printed with major American artists including Helen Frankenthaler and Wolf Kahn.
