Atlee grew up in the art business, working with her parents, J. O. "Dutch" Phillips and Mary Frances Phillips, at their galleries in Fort Worth and Dallas. She studied art history at The Colorado College and later attended the graduate program at Tulane University in order to study Aztec and Colonial Mexican art.  She has completed extended internships at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.  She continually strives to raise the public awareness of Texas art, promote Texas artists, and assist Texas art enthusiasts in building wonderful collections.
