The love of painting began for me around the age of four, from then on “Art” has been my life.

Growing up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, I continued to always focus myself around my love of art.  I went from drawing and coloring as a young child, to stepping into painting with acrylic and oils as a teenager.  I always had the great support of my family behind me.  My parents put me in different classes of art growing up, building my education with every new experience.  I went to college at the University of Southwest Louisiana to study commercial art.  After three semesters there, a local artist and teacher encouraged me to come home to be a fine art painter.  He introduced me to watercolors, I loved this type of painting and never went back to anything else.

I feel I have a great gift of being able to create and put my creations to paper, for this I am thankful everyday.
