In 2009 De Cock’s first exhibition was with Frank Van Laer in Antwerp of a series of Marie Antoinette paintings. The collection was of atypical, mischievous and humorous scenes of Antoinette in the 18th century. The exhibition was a success, with all works sold at the Vernissage. Martin Schmidt from Gallery DiMeo in Paris called her style, ‘Rock Baroque ‘. Shortly after the exhibition Luc Tuymans accepted an invitation by De Cock to come to her studio and evaluate her work. During his visit she painted a dramatic portrait of him.

De Cock has also taken part in Elephant Parade in the Netherlands and at Campo and Campo in 2011. In addition, she entered an artists competition in London and was one of the winners selected to exhibit at Liverpool Street Station.

In 2012 De Cock traveled to the United States. During a road trip through the Southwest she, “discovered the beauty and expressiveness of the Native American culture,” which resulted in a series of self portraits in Native American style.

She exhibited the series in 2013 for the WO-MEN exhibition in the Fine Art Gallery in Antwerp and at the Soze Gallery in Los Angeles, where she spent a three month artist residency. In 2014, De Cock again used elements of nature and historical costumes in her theme La Chasse, inspired by the fox hunt which she showed in a private exhibition in Antwerp.
