Born 1949 in Gainesville, Texas; lives in St. Joe, Texas

Donna Howell-Sickles, a Texas-based artist, has taken the image and idea of the cowgirl beyond charcoal lines and into reality. In the Western art genre, she has been exploring the layers beneath the Cowgirl’s engaging exterior for more than 40 years. Howell-Sickles herself identifies with the self-reliant and hard-working spirit of the cowgirl. In 2007 she was inducted into the Cowgirl Hall of Fame by the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth, Texas. Howell-Sickles work is in more than 16 museums including the National Museum of Wildlife Art, the Tucson Museum of Art, and the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. In 2023 the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis selected her painting for the Harrison Eiteljorg Purchase Award. Donna’s work is represented by Ann Korologos Gallery, Basalt, Colorado, McLarry Fine Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and at home in Davis & Blevins Gallery, Saint Jo, Texas.
