She studied under Wayman Adams, George Mock, Eliot O'Hara, Jerry Farnsworth, and John Herron at Ball State University.

She exhibited regularly at galleries in Indiana and at the Hoosier Salon from 1940 through the early 1960s. In 1945, she was awarded 1st Prize at the Hoosier Salon for her pastel entitled "Petunias". She has won upwards of 13 prizes. Her paintings continue to be shown in Indiana Galleries. In 1994, 75 of her paintings were on display at Legacy of Beauty held in Muncie at Minnmetrista Cultural Center.
