She also did the occasional portrait bust including one of William Penn.

Representative works include her figure of Narcissus leaning forward as if admiring himself in a pool at Salisbury University in Salisbury, Maryland, and her realistically detailed, energized, dance-like figure atop two porpoises in Nereid Fountain. Her sculptures were cast at foundries including Gorham in Providence, Rhode Island.
