Eventually, she and her husband, Jim Walters, and their two cats settled in St. Louis, where they both taught at the University of Missouri at St. Louis (UMSL) and where she founded the art department. She became the department's first (and third) Chair as well as its gallery director for 10 years.

The book was re-edited and reissued as an e-book in 2015.
Curtis Bartone's work explores how human beings perceive, define, and mythologize wilderness and our fragmented view of our place in the environment. His recent pieces combine various perceptions of the natural world, ranging from non-objective, scientific views to Judeo-Christian ideas of mankind’s dominion over “every living thing that moveth upon the earth” to “pagan” views of natural occurrences as codes or messages to be deciphered. Bartone fuses Renaissance painting, 17th-century Dutch still life, 19th-century scientific illustration, literature, and collections in natural science museums, with a contemporary aesthetic informed by photography and mass media. His work has been shown in 21 solo exhibitions and in more than 80 group exhibitions in several countries. He has received numerous grants and awards, including two Illinois Arts Council Grants, and has been awarded several residencies--most recently, the Emmanuel College Artist Residency in Boston for the summer of 2016. There, he will be creating a suite of etchings based on the ten plagues of Egypt. Currently, Mr. Bartone resides in Savannah, Georgia with his wife and seven cats. He splits his time between making prints and teaching printmaking at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
