I grew up in New Orleans and was intrigued by the charm of the old city and fascinated by the style and character of the antiques in my dad’s and grandfather’s antique gallery. That is where my love for art grew.
I began painting around the age of three. Although I don’t remember the story, my Mom recalls that the first time someone gave me some money, immediately I said, “Mommy, I really need to go buy some paint and brushes.” After years of practicing, I later attended the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts.
After marrying and being blessed with children, we moved to Dallas, Texas. There I worked as a graphic artist and book illustrator. During this period of time in my life, I also found my biological family and found out that my birth mother had also been an artist who worked at Jackson Square. Life can be ever so interesting.
Art has had an impact on my life, I have constantly found myself setting newer and higher goals. Through this glorious spiral upward, I realized that the more I learn, the more I want to learn, grow, and discover. Art has helped in developing my character in many ways, with it I have learned to be patient, to be tenacious, and to be satisfied with obtaining goals I never thought I could reach.
I still sometimes do some book illustrating, create gallery paintings and commission works/portraits for people.
If you would like to discuss a commission project or portrait, please private message me.
