Her work became increasingly abstract and more brightly colored after she moved to New York, and she worked prolifically into the 1970s and 1980s, delving into post-cubist abstraction, using vibrant color and geometric forms. As artist-in-residence she taught at numerous American universities as well as in China, Brazil, Lebanon, and Uganda.
