Returning to photography, throughout the next fifteen years she worked within the industry as a darkroom technician, freelance photographer, wedding photographer, commercial photographer and photojournalist, learning her craft.

In 1996 she began work as a teacher of 'Fine Art' photography at Illawarra TAFE, Goulburn. 

Now as an art photographer she combines her art practice with teaching and as a presenter in workshops and seminars internationally.
