I am a petite artist, a Coastie wife, and mother of two boys and an angel. 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, Long Beach, California, and Chicago, Illinois. We presently live in Chesapeake, Virginia.
