It’s been a hot couple of days at the campus of OCCC and looks like today will be hot as well. It will make packing up at 4pm today a little less sad though!
I’ve enjoyed the festival so much again this year! It’s wonderful to connect with old friends and make new ones! There are really a lot of nice people out there!!
I’m so grateful to all the people who braved the heat and crowds to come out and see the show! And thanks to so many who made positive comments about my work, that means a lot to me.

A proud member of the Chickasaw tribe, I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I studied art at Moore High School, The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma, Rose State College and the University of Central Oklahoma. Among my mentors and instructors I include Bert Seabourn, Glenn Thomas and Carol Armstrong.
My work leans heavily to the side of realism with tones of impressionism or expressionism in some areas.
I strive to capture the beauty of God’s world in all my work. I am intrigued by the minute differences that make each person unique and at the same time the things that unify us as human beings. The slight drop of an eyelid or a shoulder can convey emotions that are common to us all. I especially love trying to capture the openness of children's expressions. I'm fascinated with the fleeting moment and excited by the challenge of capturing not just a likeness but an atmosphere or feeling.
