Examples of her whimsical linoleum block prints and letterpress books have appeared in exhibitions at the Mission Cultural Center, SOMArts Gallery, New Langton Arts, the Korean Cultural Center of Los Angeles, the San Francisco Center for the Book, Mills College, the San Francisco Main Public Library, and at Post, Poster, Postest in Tokyo.
