Howdy! You’ve reached the spot of a native Texan that studies art and music while living in the Big Bend of West Texas. City girl went to the desert, and took with her a pile of skills to practice and make into art.

Paint, draw, photograph, video, hoop and play music – all to document and flush out ideas about nature and its tenuous hold on the planet – all to celebrate humanity and its relationship with the desert – all to challenge myself and substantiate artistic expression. Welcome to the process!
