Gordon introduced her first mixed media series in 2001. One of her major works from this period is the 8' by 10' biographical art quilt "Labat: A Creole Legacy" which has been acquired by the Smithsonian Institution for inclusion into their permanent collection. In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina obliterated her home and studio in the small community of Clermont Harbor, Mississippi. With her tools and supplies destroyed by 140 mile per hour winds and a 43-foot storm surge, Gordon resourcefully returned to work using the only materials available to her.
