I was raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I’ve drawn and painted for as long as I can remember.
In 2008 I earned my bachelor’s degree with an emphasis in painting from Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas. I also took a summer course at New York Studio School and interned with Sammy Peters in Little Rock, AR.
For the next decade I lived in several states, working as a cook and making art part-time.
In 2019, I moved to Jacksonville, Florida and started making art full-time, selling out of art markets, walks, fairs and festivals.
In 2021, I moved to Colorado Springs, CO where I currently work out of my home studio.
