Queen grew up in Southern Oregon and is a graduate of Eagle Point High School. After serving in the U.S. Air Force and working in law enforcement, she earned a bachelor's in art with an emphasis in graphics and Web design from Southern Oregon University.

Queen's art captures stories holding old and new themes with native designs. She works in ceramics, sculpture, oil, watercolor, pastels, charcoal and other media. She is president of Arrow Graphics & Web Design.
