Her mixed-media bicycle paintings evoke the sensory experience of west Texas weather such as the sound and motion of wind, fading sunlight and shifting temperatures. Her signature technique builds on cyanotype, a light-sensitive process that she blends with painting and drawing. She is a Professor of Art at Texas Tech University. Presented by The CH Foundation.
