When speaking about her passion for art-making, Frost states that it is "an inquiry into the nature of reality". Her works is based in recurring interests in "illustration of the written word or of interior kingdoms" and "painting and drawing from life."

Her recent solo exhibitions include "Men of The Twentieth Century" at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach, FL, "X Contemporary Art Fair, Pamela Willoughby" at Art Miami Basel, FL, and "Peonies" at Gallery 20/20 in New York, NY.
