Gilda Meyers was born in Magnolia, Arkansas. It was the call of the nearby piney woods and the weekly fishing trips with her Pappy that inspired her love of nature. After retiring in 2003 to her Ladyhawke Ranch, her horses and miniature donkeys became the primary focus of her realistic pen and inks.
Gilda began experimenting with art materials at a young age. She gained basic art skills and creativity from her late mother and grandmother. She received an undergraduate degree in art from Southern Arkansas University and started her career as an art educator.
Gilda presently works in her Hawke Hollow Studio nestled in the Ouachita Mountains of southeast Oklahoma. She is a multimedia artist, but prefers pen and ink.
Gilda has distinguished herself in art shows and competitions across the south. When not involved in her art career, Gilda enjoys volunteering with the Humane Society of the Ouachitas and serving on several organizational boards.
