Over the next five decades, she showed her work at the Royal Academy, Royal Society of British Artists and Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours and at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin and at Manchester City Art Gallery. She also participated at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1900 (at which she was awarded a bronze medal); the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis, Missouri in 1904; and the New Zealand International Exhibition held in Christchurch in 1906-07.
