I grew up in the small town of smyrna, TN and I've always had a love for the arts. I obtained my Fine Art degree at Nossi College of Art and I have been working as a full time artist ever since; I love it! I opened my first Art Gallery in 2014 in Santa Rosa Beach, FL and I now I live with my wonderful daughter and our three cats in the country.
You can find me busy in my art studio on most days, polishing and fine tuning my artistic skills. When the weather permits, I love to be outdoors with my daughter, enjoying the zoo, hiking or simply taking a stroll around the local park.
A blank canvas, and sparked creativity will always be at the top of my favorite things. However, being curled up under a soft, cozy blanket while sipping some warm tea and indulging in an intriguing book is definitely my second treasured choice.
