There, She designed and fabricated 3-D motion displays incorporating her characters.

Desiring a more permanent vehicle to display her work, with the aid of her Husband, an accomplished engineer, she designed, and patented her 3-Dimentional motion artworks which are currently displayed in Art Galleries across the country.
