After working in graphic design she became an educator, artist and writer, exhibiting her work internationally and in galleries, museums and public institutions in the United States. Her work ranges from digital prints and artist books to web sites and interactive installations. Venues include the Studio Museum Harlem, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Contemporary Arts Museum of Houston. Her work ranges from digital prints and artist books to web sites and interactive installations.

Her writing on former Black Panther artist Emory Douglas’s work appears in Black Panther: The Revolutionary Art of Emory Douglas, and West of Center: Art and the Counterculture Experiment in America, 1965-1977. Since 2004, she continues to write about Douglas’s work including his current international human rights activism.
