In the early 1990s she began exhibiting mixed media collage work while she served as the Director of the Baton Rouge Gallery, Inc. From her desire to expand her art making scope and to teach, she returned to school in the mid-90s. She completed her M.F.A. in painting and sculpture from the University of South Carolina (1997). In 1998 she received an Artist Fellowship award from the South Carolina Arts Commission and remained in South Carolina making and exhibiting art while teaching and organizing installation events. At the end of 2000, Boudreau returned to New Orleans where she continued her studio practice while teaching and coordinating exhibitions at the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (2001-05). Her post flood interval included a three-month residency at the Santa Fe Arts Institute. In 2006, she assisted in the development of a concentrated visual arts program at a New Orleans public charter high school and chaired the department for two years. Wanting to devote more time to her studio activities, Boudreau returned to part-time teaching. She has taught drawing, design and digital art at the foundations level for over ten years. Since 2004, Boudreau has been represented by LeMieux Galleries in the New Orleans Arts District. For over ten years she has been an artist member of the Baton Rouge Gallery -- one of the oldest artists’ cooperative galleries in the country. In 2009 Boudreau was invited back to Columbia, South Carolina as an artist in residence at the 701 Center for Contemporary Arts. Her residency culminated with a solo exhibition in the spring of 2009.
