Since the middle of 2015, she has been focused on documenting in oil and acrylic paintings, watercolors and ink drawings the progress at numerous interior and exterior construction sites in Midtown Manhattan as the area undergoes major physical and demographic changes.

"Construction Paintings", her first exhibition of this new artwork, was on view in Fall 2016 at the head office of Sciame LLC, a construction company in New York City. In February and March 2018 she exhibited “Construction Series” in the Kaufman Arcade, a public art space in the Garment District, NYC, as well as showing selected paintings in group gallery shows in Massachusetts and in New Jersey.  In 2019, "Constructions Sites" was on view at the Clinton / Hell's Kitchen Studios Gallery during May and June and she will be included in "Picturing Space", a group shows at FIT in Midtown Manhattan this November.

Her construction site artwork has been featured on NY1 television news, in The Village Voice, on multiple art and real estate blogs and in international media. This body of work is the subject of a multi-award winning short documentary, The Monolith, from New York City director Angelo Guglielmo. View below.
