Lia's images have been showcased in an international photography competition sponsored by Mazda Corporation of Japan (First prize). Her photographs are in private, public, and corporate collections, including the Polaroid International Photography Collection and the john hancock collection.

lia's photographs have been used on the covers of books published by Harvard University Press and the University Press of New England and her portraits of authors and poets have been used by Harper Collins and other publishers. Recently her work was featured in the book Cold Wax Medium: Techniques,: Concepts & Conversations by Rebecca Crowell and Jerry McLaughlin.
