She was awarded the Graham Prize at the Holmfirth Art Exhibition, the Nicholson & Co. Prize with the Lincolnshire Artists’ Society and the Lincoln Hospitals Purchase Prize with the same Society.
With the American Watercolor Society, she was awarded the Walser S. Greathouse Medal and was included in the travelling show.
She was a co–founder of the Louth Art Exhibition and was involved with all the exhibitions in Louth Town Hall for the 12 years that it raised money for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity.
