Flueckiger received her a BFA in painting & drawing in Art from University of Minnesota and an MFA in painting from University of New Mexico. She has developed a mixed media painting technique that uses the blistering West Texas sun to expose blueprints of historic handwriting and vintage graphics onto painted wood surfaces, paper and fabric. She has secured grant funding to study documents from the Women's Rights National Historical Park, American Antiquarian Society, Library of Congress and Eleanor Roosevelt Paper Project. Currently, her work is registered with the Drawing Center in New York and is represented by Charles Adams Gallery in Lubbock, TX. Her artworks have been integrated into a national park service venue, architecture projects, dance choreography and devised theater. She is an associate professor of art at Texas Tech University and lives in Lubbock with her husband and son.
“My artwork is a combination of paper doll, history lesson and weather forecast. I use the blistering West Texas sun to blueprint historic handwriting and vintage graphics onto paper, fabric and wood panels. Early American civil rights history is an overarching inspiration in my work. This theme is underscored by the use of primary documents as source imagery.”
