About me

My interest in art started in 3rd grade when I won a competition with ​a drawing of Snoopy. My love of art continued through high school, ​with most of my classes being in the Art department. After high ​school I earned a bachelor's degree in Psychology from Texas State ​University and then went to hair school at Toni & Guy Hairdressing ​Academy to pursue a career that used my creative passion. My focus ​on color and shape have transitioned from cut and color in salons ​into works on canvas. The elements of bright bold colors, an ​understanding of color theory, and composition blends seamlessly ​into visual art.

After many years working in my home studio, my career as a full time ​2D visual artist began in 2018 with my first public appearance at a ​local bar and art venue, and since that first exhibition my work has ​been displayed at Monterosso Gallery, The Silos at Sawyer Yards, the ​Kinder Morgan Building, East End Gallery, Ecclesia Houston, and ​Hardy and Nance Studios.

After spending over a decade doing hair and working behind the ​chair, I now focus my creativity from a different angle. Portrait work ​allows for investigating the stories told in peoples faces. Working ​from photos to create portraits of people I find interesting and who’s ​stories correlate to my own life, it is my intention to foster ​connection to common themes of human emotions and experiences.

Whether bringing someone's story to life or sharing my own stories ​through images on canvas, my passion for fostering connection ​through visual storytelling is what drives my work and makes me ​excited to wake up in the morning.
