I am an artist with a family background in horse racing. I started drawing with charcoal while attending college and working at Oaklawn Park. I sold my first piece, "Azeri", through Gallery Central in Hot Springs, Arkansas when I was 17. Since then I have sold more than 70 pieces, and the majority have been commissioned. Though my earlier pieces concentrated mostly on equine art, in recent years I have completed many portraits of people's loved ones: human, canine, and equine. No subject is too great or too small. For example, some of my latest pieces have include a beloved dog, a farmer in a combine at dawn, and my largest work; (50x60 inches framed) a drawing of Arlington Park Race Track that was reproduced for the 2014 Arlington Million invitations and the daily program.
I am married to thoroughbred jockey, Israel Ocampo. We spend the year traveling to the various racetracks my husband competes at.
Israel is my foremost inspiration and my greatest promoter. I feel fortunate to be the artist that I am today, and look forward to future projects.
