She exhibited from 1881 at the Royal Academy, Grosvenor Gallery, New Gallery and elsewhere. Her principal paintings are 'Ariadne' 1885; 'Ophelia' 1890 (Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool); 'Flowers Plucked and Cast Aside' 1892; 'Sir Richard Whittington and his Charities' 1900 (fresco for the Royal Exchange); 'Portrait of Lady Tenterden and Echo' 1906; 'Hylas and the Water Nymphs' 1910.
