I have been an artist since the age of 9, when I won a gold ribbon in the Illinois State Fair for  a paper mache horse I created.

​​   Since that time, I have been inspired to create art in many different mediums.  At age 16, I sold my first commission piece of a calico cat which was a colored pencil drawing. 

   During high school, I was enrolled in Art Instruction Schools and then decided to started on my own solitary journey of continuing education and exploration  

   As of December 2018, I joined the Pharmacy Gallery and Art Space in located in Downtown Springfield and have been creating new paper mache piece since.

   I hope you enjoy seeing my art as much as I enjoy creating it and feel compelled to make art that is an inspiration for others.  ​​
