As an artist, Carolyn Boyd, who's also an author and archaeologist, has described being "overwhelmed by wonder" when she first saw the ancient rock paintings in canyons near the Texas-Mexico border.

The 1989 visit proved to be a life-changing moment for the young woman who at the time was working as a professional muralist and had a studio in north Houston, according to the Texas Observer.

She decided to study anthropology and archaeology for a deeper understanding of the art work that has become her career focus, the pictographs of the Lower Pecos Canyonlands.
