She was a member of the Societe des Beaux-Arts in Paris and exhibited with the Societe Nationale des Beaux Arts in Paris in 1898.

This society was founded in the 1880s as a rival to the well-established group sponsoring the ‘oficial’ Salon.  The SNBA held their exhibitions at the Palais des Beaux Arts on the Champs-de-Mars.
