My Short Biography

1992 -

Picasso once said, "Art washes away from the soul the dust of every day life." I believe that to be very true, but to me it runs even deeper. It is a need. It is my therapy. It is a driving force.

I am a graduate of Watkins College of Art and Design in Nashville, TN. My BA is a concentration in film. Although, I am a self-taught artist, sculptor, and photographer, I learned much of the basics of design/lighting/etc from my undergrad classes.

I have a serious health condition, epilepsy, which I believe art helps. Sometimes, it makes for gaps in my work, but I had brain surgery 2 years ago and have been mostly seizure free since. I've been very busy lately.

I had my very first photography show at Art On The Square in Greensburg, Indiana and I nearly sold out! 

I currently reside in Columbus, Indiana with my boyfriend David and cat, Sookie.
