Donna Howell-Sickles, a western artist from Saint Jo, Texas, was inducted into the Cowgirl Hall of Fame in 2007 for her artistic work and the ability to take the image and idea of the cowgirl beyond charcoal lines and into reality.

“My artwork reflects my admiration for the strong Western women of both past and present,” said Howell-Sickles. “Stories worthy of telling about the beauty, depth and joy of living with an appreciation of the hopes and struggles we share.”

She has exhibited her art in the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, Buffalo Bill Art Show & Sale, National Museum of Wildfire Art and more.

The Trail of the Cowgirl exhibition premiered in the Anne W. Marion Gallery of the National Cowgirl Museum at the opening of the new Kit Moncrief Galleries and will be on exhibit until September 2019.
