Dooze had a solo exhibition at Salthouse Gallery, St Ives in 1995; another at Galeria Punkt, Gdansk, Poland in 1996 and in the same year included in a St Ives exhibition at David Holmes Contemporary Art, Peterborough. Other mixed exhibitions include Collyer Bristow Gallery, London; The Millinery Works Gallery, London; The Millenium Gallery, St Ives and Belgrave St Ives, . Her French experience influenced a decision to step back from showing paintings and instead to focus on developing a large body of work, some of which can be seen at Cricket Fine Art in Chelsea.
