I am from the small town of Slaughter, Louisiana. I pursued my artistic interest at Louisiana State University, and achieved a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art, in the school of Graphic Design. While at LSU, I was employed in their in-house design center doing campus event design/artwork. While in college, I also worked in Betts Fine Art Gallery of Baton Rouge, where I learned museum quality custom framing, photo/canvas printing, and canvas stretching. After graduation I worked as a graphic designer and administrator for BIC magazine of Baton Rouge for 6 years, designing advertisements for Louisiana commercial industry, before moving on to sell my own artwork full-time.
In March 2006, I began truly pursuing my passion by selling my art at the French Market in New Orleans, as well as at other art festivals and exhibitions. In 2011 The ZULU Social Aid and Pleasure club selected my original design through a heavily juried process for their official Mardi Gras poster; it will be a celebrated collectible piece of New Orleans history.
Since I first started selling my art in New Orleans 10 years ago, I would go to the gazebo at Audubon Park by the pond to begin laying out large drawings. It's nice to be around all of the greenery, water, and a little wildlife... and it's right down the street. Normally there are not too many people on weekdays and I'm all by myself.
