Her extensive traveling, even living and working in the 1920s with a tribe in Samoa, is revealed in many of her earlier works while the later paintings and prints reflect her love of the Pacific Northwest in the United States. A thread of surreality and abstraction is observed in her paintings of the late 1920s through the early 1950s, overtaken by her irrepressible gusto for life and nature.
