Art Education: No formal training. However, my mother, who is an artist, has taught me many things throughout the years.
Style: Photorealistic. I have always been drawn to detail, but in each piece I still strive to bring out something that you couldn’t get from a photograph.
Creative Spark: I am inspired by the world around me. I have always been drawn to horses and the cowboy lifestyle due to the romanticized freedom they represent.
Second-Choice Career: Architecture or interior design.
Other Passions: The great outdoors. And any of our friends will tell you that my husband and I are overly passionate about our dogs, which are red heelers. I also am into health and fitness and have become a tea enthusiast.
Biggest Fear: It’s absurd, but I cringe at the thought of sharks and volcanoes despite living in Arkansas, where you will find neither.
Pet Peeve: I hate being in the car with a driver who succumbs to road rage.
Mantra or Motto: Live every day with gratitude and a humble heart.
Favorite Studio Music: The soundtrack from The Last of the Mohicans.
Future Goals: My biggest goal at this time is teaching myself to paint. I love working in graphite and have always hesitated to jump into painting. But this year I have started getting my feet wet.
Price Range: $500 to $5,000.
Representation: Lovetts Gallery, Tulsa, OK.
