Michele L. Mowdy

Biography: Michele L. Mowdy is mainly a self taught artist currently living in Edmond, Oklahoma.  Michele took high school art from her mother Darlene Mowdy, who was a high school art teacher and artist.  She took several college level art courses at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma, graduating with a BS Degree.  She currently takes art classes at Edmond Fine Arts, working in water color, pastel, and acrylic.  Charlie Russell, Frederick Remington, and George Catlin are several Western Artist inspirations.  Catlin is especially important to her as he painted her 6x "grandfather", Choctaw Chief Mosholatubbee, in 1834.  The painting hangs in the Smithsonian in Washington, DC.  Growing up in Northwestern North Dakota, spending time on her grandparent's ranches in Eastern Montana and Southeastern Oklahoma, and rich family history as a member of the Choctaw Nation, inspires her love of Western and Native American art.  Michele's grandfather Clyde Mowdy, great grandmother Viola Alexander Mowdy, and great-great grandmother Sarah Freeny Alexander Wood, were original enrollees of the Choctaw Nation.
