Biography


I am an artist,  mother,  grandmother and teacher.  My husband Ricky and I live on a small ranch in the mountains of southeast Oklahoma in the heart of the Choctaw Nation.  Our children are grown and gone, but we still have horses, a couple head of cows, cats, chickens, ducks, a goose, a yorkie named Bentley and too many Australian shephards.  I have four children who are now all raising families of their own, and our circle grows every year.  Family is the most important thing in the world to me.  I have four sisters and we talk every single day.  I am a middle school art teacher and truly enjoy introducing the world of art to my students. 
 
I have painted almost all my life but only for family and friends until the last few years.  Only recently have I found the courage to put my work out there.  I have been blessed with an unexpected but wonderful response to my art and for this I am grateful.  Last November, I had my first show at the Center for Arts and Education in Van Buren, Arkansas. It was a wonderful experience and I hope there are more in my future.
 
​My roots are steeped in the cowboy and western lifestyle as well as in my Choctaw heritage, and you'll find that both have a strong influence in my work.  Women play an important role in my art and I try to portray the strength and love that carried our grandmothers through their lives.   I have explored many mediums, including ceramics, leather, watercolor and photography, but my favorites are acrylics and oil.  I love the look of oil and the dry time of acrylics.  Oil teaches me patience while acrylics gives me a more immediate gratification.

I am proud to be listed on the Choctaw Artist Registry [...]
