I am a petite artist, a Coastie wife, and mother to an angel baby and a little boy. I am originally from the metropolitan area of Detroit, Michigan, and graduated from the Columbus College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I worked as an art conservator in New Orleans, Louisiana, for several years before pursuing a career as a professional artist. My family has been stationed in locations including Pensacola and Tampa, Florida, New Orleans, Louisiana, and Long Beach, California. We presently live in Chicago, Illinois.
