'A Neighborhood in Transition – Murals in Bedford-Stuyvesant' looked at the changes that have taken place in this once infamous Brooklyn neighborhood. Her images were featured in a highly publicized exhibit in Brooklyn’s Bedford Library and were published in A Magazine, a global publication, and the NY Daily News.

"To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”- Elliott Erwitt
