Her paintings have won awards and been included by juries in group shows in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Door County, Wisconsin.

The majority of her work is completed on location. One of her goals is to complete the Fifty State Project, making a plein air painting in of the fifty United States.
"I like doing art related to the environment. There are many wonderful dogs needing to be re-homed and my breed is the Australian Cattle Dog, who disappears in the night landscape; her own camouflage, probably a boon for those who wished to rustle cattle using an invisible dog."Rodrica Tilley
