Artist currently residing in Southern Louisiana. Serving area of New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Shreveport, and beyond! Traveling and Art are my main driving forces in life. 

I've lived all over the U.S. starting out in a small town in LaGrange, Missouri, then living in Louisiana for about 10 years where I received my Undergraduate degree in Fine Art & Art History at Nicholls State University. I then moved to Portland, Oregon where I lived and worked for 2 years until moving to Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I pursued my career and life there for a year until moving back to Southern Louisiana. 

I appreciate and love all beings whether they be animals or humans. I believe in love. I believe in acceptance and learning and growing. 

I primarily work in Acrylic & Watercolor paints doing commission work and live event & wedding painting. I also am constantly making portrait work of myself and others. In my work I believe in promoting all body types/genders/diversity. I also photograph families, engagements, portrait sessions.
