Her work is collected by many public and private collections, inncluding the major institutions: the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; the State Library of Victoria, Melbourne; the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, Darwin; the Shepparton Art Museum, Victoria; the Benalla Art Gallery, Victoria; the Mildura Arts Centre, Victoria; and the collections of Deakin, LaTrobe and Victoria University, Victoria
