Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, I learned at an early age the importance of spending time in nature. Many of my pieces are explorations of nature and memories of being a child in my grandmother’s gardens. At the age of nine, I relocated with my family to the Gulf Coast where my first true love became the ocean. As a college student, I began painting and refinishing furniture and this is when I first fell in love with paint.
I earned a B.S.B.A. from the University of West Florida in marketing, but following my passions I became a self-taught artist. I use many different mediums, such as oils, acrylics, and graphite that land on both canvas and paper. I enjoy mix media because of the freeness it renders.
Now happily residing in Birmingham for the past two years, you can find my artwork on exhibit at Arceneaux Gallery in Homewood. I hope you enjoy my art.
