Themes from her extensive travels, including museum tours with SFMOMA, often appear in her work. Hicks studied under Bay Area artists, Lundy Siegrist and Peter Brown. In 1976 the San Francisco Festival of the Arts awarded her a solo show, and she received the Janet Langmaid Award at the Oakland Art Association in 1981. Signed and titled on the back and signed lower left. Framed in a contemporary wood floater frame with silver face and sides and black interior.
