Among some of her most notable awards is the third prize at a Drawing Pageant organized by the UN in 1953. Her work has been exhibited widely in Mexico and the US, in important galleries like Misrachi, Salon de la Plastica Mexicana, Instituto Cultural Mexicano (San Antonio TX), and the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo in Mexico City.

She made three murals during her life. One at the Cineteca Nacional that was lost during a fire, another one at the Bosque de Chapultepec that has also since disappeared, and the last one at the Mexican Senate which is the only one standing today.




Her major collector is billionaire Jorge Hank Rhon, a Mexican businessman and politician, owner of one of the major sports betting companies "Caliente" and one time Major of Tijuana from 2004-2007.
