About the Artist:
While best known as a sculptor, my career began as a wildlife painter. My work has been covered repeatedly by every art magazine and has been included in many Museum exhibits including a 45-year retrospective at the Gilcrease in 2011. I was inducted into the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in 2016 for a lifetime of representing the West in art.
