Anita Cunningham is an artist by education and by choice.
As a young child, her parents encouraged her to begin drawing.
Her interest grew from there, to the point where her parents agreed to pay for art lessons when she was around 10 years old.
She continued taking lessons, eventually studying art at the University of Oklahoma. Even then, her formal training was not finished; she continues to seek out opportunities with well-qualified instructors.
“I am forever learning,” she said.
