I live in and am a native of the piedmont of North Carolina. The beauty of my home state definitely influences my work. Though I have described myself primarily as an artist, I have many interests and activities to which I am devoted. Creativity and production are important to me, as well as wellness and balance. Most of what I do contributes to my own version of balance.

I enjoy nature, traveling, music, stories and color. These interests are reflected in my art.

I also am a school counselor at an elementary school. It is my job to help students develop wellness and balance.
