From 1996 to 1999 she taught painting at the Firehouse Gallery in Oak Bluffs.

Referring to the making of art, Ms. Hinds said, “Undertaking the making of a painting or drawing is a journey that can lead to discovery. For some time I was working abstractly with color, and shapes and brush strokes. Lately, I have been painting in a more representationalmanner, subjects that I have always been interested in,i.e. boats andVineyard places that have special meaning to me.”
