A special interest within her work is the traditional Japanese water-based woodcut technique, known as mokuhanga, leading her to attend the first International Conference of Mokuhanga in Kyoto, Japan in 2011. In 1985 Neal founded Everglade Press and in 1990 she co-founded the Kentler International Drawing Space in Red Hook, Brooklyn and serves as its Director of Exhibitions.
