That is pronounced like Orion with an M in front, but most people know me as Mo. A friend in high school started writing my name, and after writing the first two letters, stopped and said "I think I'll start calling you THAT." It caught on, I suppose because it is easier for people to remember, pronounce and spell.
I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, but I started making art professionally in 2006 working as an in-house artist for an embroidery company, and selling my own paintings on the side. I now work freelance, making licensed art, fine art, illustrations and occasionally teaching art classes.
Much of my art is inspired by where I live. Oklahoma is full of friendly people, red dirt, and beautiful places. I love the mix of vintage western and modern design found here. I live in the more rural part (which is most of the state) on a small acreage with my husband and son, dogs, cats and horses.
