Bio

I was born in 1968 in Gulfport, Mississippi. I currently work predominantly in goauche. I graduated with a BA , emphasis in graphic design from the University of Mississippi in 1991. I worked in advertising as an art director from 1992-1996. In 2000, I started a decorative painting and mural business. As I reacquaintedmyself with drawing and painting, I slowly returned to painting in oils, acrylic and experimented with encaustic, beginning in 2001.  My first gallery showing was in 2004, where I participated in an annual group show at David Lusk Gallery in Memphis. My art has been in continuous evolution and I have thoroughly enjoyed every second of the process.
