About the Artist
My life before becoming an artist has had many twists and turns. Coming from a family who had careers in law enforcement, I set my dreams on becoming a street cop, too. This was at a time when women were only jailers or juvenile officers, so I knew my journey would be breaking the norm. It happened. I became one of the first two female Deputys to patrol the streets of Harris County with the Sheriff's Office, Houston Texas in 1975.
