Now a teacher,
demonstrator, and active exhibitor, Fealing is an annual guest instructor at
Yosemite National Park, an instructor at Brand Library in Glendale, Pasadena
Community College, and also at her converted home studio. She is an annual
exhibitor at Descanso Gardens (the most beautiful and
prestigious garden in Southern California), Alhambra
City Hall Gallery, as well as numerous other galleries and organizations.
Fealing has been enthusiastically embraced by the general public and private

Arts Festival 2002 in Colorado; Watercolor West National 2003, and 2004;
