Shipping cost: $50.00
I was born in Covington, Louisiana. After college (I studied Literature and Art History, with plans to go into academia) I moved to Serbia for two years. I was inspired by the Byzantine icons-- a motif that still finds its way into my work regularly-- and, for the first time in my life, found I had the time to paint every day. I quickly realized this was how I wanted to spend the rest of my life and I returned to the United States determined to establish an art career. I've been painting full-time ever since.
I still spend a lot of time traveling, and when I'm not in New Orleans you can find me in some distant land (most recently, I took the Trans-Siberian railway from Beijing to Moscow), sketchbook in hand, gathering inspiration.
