About Me

I was born in New Orleans in 1990 one minute short of first. I was gifted with a supportive family and an obsessive drive to translate my observations into drawing and painting. I studied old masters techniques in intensive workshops and went on to earn my BFA from LSU in painting and drawing with a minor in art history, and my MFA through a fellowship at SMU. I currently reside in Dallas with my partner and pup. I teach at the Creative Arts Center of Dallas and Richland College as well as workshops and private lessons.
