She has collections in Europe, the US, and Australia.

Tryon, San Luis Obispo, Ca, USA; Rudana Museum-Gallery, Ubud; Richard Gere; Elizabeth Taylor; and many more throughput the world. She has had many exhibitions, over the years, in many of the finest local hotels and galleries both here in Bali and in Jakarta as well.  She has been mentioned in the following magazines: Dewi – Sonny Sandaya; Asri – author Ratih Teguh; Lazaz; Now Bali; Bali and Beyond; Maxx-M; and more.  Plus the following newspapers: Jakarta Post; Republica, Jakarta; Business News; Bali News; Manuntung Kalimantan; and more.
