It all started when Donna was a junior at Texas Tech getting her BFA. She acquired an old postcard, circa 1935, depicting a cowgirl seated atop a horse. The vintage postcard read, “Greetings from a Real Cowgirl from the Ole Southwest”. Attracted by the charm and confidence of the woman in the image, Howell-Sickles began incorporating the cowgirl figure into her artwork, as well as collecting and researching theses old-time cowgirl images. Before long, this cowgirl icon, and all that she could stand for, became the central theme in her contemporary- Western settings of mixed-media artwork.
