She is an internationally acclaimed artist and author of many best selling books including Through the Flower: My struggle as a Woman Artist and The Dinner Party: A Symbol of our Heritage. Fragments From the Delta Of Venus is a collection of images based on the erotic writing of Anais Nin and was published in 2004 by Power House Books.

Her seminal work, The Dinner Party,1979, is a symbolic history of women in western civilization. It will be unveiled at the new Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum in 2007 and will remain there on permanent display.
