Since her formative years, Ms. Chick boasted unique creativity and with the support of her parents, she went on to flourish as an artist. With her passion for the arts growing immensely during her formative years, she continued to explore the field and develop her skills in an academic setting. A graduate of the University of Missouri at Kansas City, she obtained a Bachelor of Arts in 1967. She concluded her academic efforts at Kent State University, from which she earned a Master of Fine Arts in 1970.

Earlier in her career, Ms. Chick worked as an instructor in studio and art history at Palomar College between 1991 and 2005. She had also served as a lecturer in art history at the University of San Diego and an instructor at Maple Woods College. In addition to this works, she has collected art for more than 45 years. Throughout the years, she has amassed a collection of original prints by American artists that include etchings, woodcuts, stone lithographs, and linocuts done from 1875 to 1950. Most recently, she presented “New Eyes on New Mexico,” at Branigan Cultural Center in Las Cruces, New Mexico, where she also gave an artist talk. Today, she serves as the principal owner of the Cow Trail Art Studio.

Knowledgeable in fine arts, Ms. Chick joined Big Blend Magazines as an art expert. In this position, she writes articles on art-related topics and is often featured as an art guest on podcasts and radio shows. Upon her civic duties, Ms. Chick has dedicated her time to the San Diego Museum of Art Artists’ Guild, the 123rd and 124th Southern California Exhibitions of Art, where she was honored to be a juror for those exhibitions, and the National Scholastic Art Awards. One of her most important roles has been founding the Southwest Regional Museum of Art and Art Center. She has been apart of numerous speaking engagements such as being asked to lecture for a national convention held by the  American Association for Homes of the Aging. Ms. Chick attributes her success to the support and encouragement that her family and supporters had continued to give her throughout the years. In the coming years, she hopes to continue presenting her art and growing her gallery.
