Portnoy works mainly in cast lead crystal glass creating figurative sculpture. She is prolific and is known to work in clay, bronze, cement, polystyrene, glass mosaic, and stainless steel. Community projects as well as weekend workshops and summer school teaching are welcomed distractions to her solo studio practice.

Portnoy says, 'Where I get my inspiration is a mystery to me. I am often surprised at what I create and excited at how it provides me with a window into the deeper levels of my conscious. I travel a lot - back to North America for family and friends and to as many exotic destinations as possible. My interest has always been in human nature, human form; human psychology, mysticism, ritual and the mysteries of life'.
