She worked in her father's studio and sent a number of works, mostly miniature busts, to the Royal Hibernian Academy at intervals between 1838 and 1859. A life-sized bust by her of her nephew "Thomas Kirk Stewart" (q.v.),is in possession of the latter's son, Frank Stewart of Kansas City. An "Infant Bacchus" in plaster was in the Dublin Exhibition of 1853. The date of her death has not been ascertained.
