Born and raised in Waxahachie,Texas, Kiki currently works from her studio/gallery, SKYPONY, in Dallas, Texas. She is also co-director of the Gallery at MidTown in Dallas with her husband Douglas Winters III.
Self-taught in the medium of fiber art which began her career as a life-long artist. Formal training began in San Miguel de Allende at the Institudo del Arte and private instruction in silver-smithing and painting. Her colorful and textural painting dance with the vividness of her artistic experience in Mexico. It was there in San Miguel where she saw her first encaustic exhibition of a famous Mexican artist. Years later, she has developed her own style of encaustic wax art with a flair of textures and layers of rich color.
Kiki is a published author of Crows Calling, a suspenseful murder mystery available on Amazon. Soon to be released is her sequel, Eating Crow to be published in the Spring of 2015 by Xlibris Publishing.
Before her training in San Miguel, she spent four years on the road as a standup comic as the opening act for Tony Stone. She has been a guest on Howard Stern and published in a popular nationwide magazine.
Kikis art is represented by Wild Holly in Carefree, Arizona and Cherokee Mountain Gallery in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Her art can be seen at SkyPony Studio and Gallery at Midtown in Dallas.
