In 1973 she married Irish artist Tony O’Malley (1913 – 2003) and in 1990 they settled in Ireland with regular visits to the Isles of Scilly, the Bahamas, and the Canary Islands. O’Malley has held solo exhibitions at Ulster Museum, Belfast (1984); Montpelier Studio, London (1989); Taylor Galleries, Dublin (1991-1997); Riverrun Gallery, Limerick (1990) and a major retrospective at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2005).
