Her work is widely collected and can be found in many prestigious private and public collections including the National Museum in Torun, Poland; the Polish Institute of New York; Elizabeth Arden, San Francisco and Nordstrom, Inc., in Seattle.

Her works are published with Georgia O’Keeffe and featured in Arizona Highways, Home and Garden and featured on television. Andrea de Kerpely-Zak works are called, "Healing," and have been commissioned for the likes of Pope John Paul II.
