Her west Texas studio in the hills sits on a bed of ancient lava rock looking over a vast old ranch. The wandering javelina herds, deer and turkey are frequent visitors at her studio reminding her of her favorite quote from John Muir: “When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it connected to the rest of the world.”
