One of her major figurative works was chosen as a finalist for the 2016 Outwin Boochever Exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C and another was selected for the 2015 BP Portrait Award Show at the National Portrait Gallery in London. In addition, the historic Guild of Boston Artists elected her to become a member in 2015, and she won the Edmund C. Tarbell Award in her first juried members show. She then won the Charles Movalli Award of Excellence from the Guild 3 years later. Carmody received the Blanche E. Colman Award as well as the Newcomb Award for Traditional Painting. She was invited to exhibit in the 2016 American Masters show at the Salmagundi Club. In 2022 She won the North Shore Arts Award at the Guild of Boston Artists.

Carmody exhibits work regularly in solo and group shows at the Sloane Merrill Gallery, The Grenning Gallery, the Guild of Boston Artists, and The Christina Gallery. Publications that have featured her work include American Art Collector, Fine Art Connoisseur, International Artist Magazine, Fine Art Today, Southwest Art, Studio Visit Magazine, Boston Magazine, and The Boston Globe. Carmody has won grants from the Ludwig Foundation, Turkey Land Cove Foundation, and Massachusetts Cultural Council, as well as receiving an Edward G. McDowell Travel Grant from the Art Students League and the Walter Feldman Grant. In 2014 she won 3rd place in the Portrait Society’s International Portrait Competition.
