ABOUT

In the beginning
I grew up in a mountainside motel. You know the kind, on the side of the road with separate buildings for every couple of rooms. It was great. We had a pool and basketball hoop and a dogwood tree with a crazy root system we could create miniature worlds in.

Escape
i escaped the hills and ran to RICHMOND. RICHMOND IS HOME. ITS AMAZING TO WATCH A TOWN SLOWLY BUT SURELY PROGRESS, ALTHOUGH WE HAVE A WAYS TO GO. I graduated from vcu in 2002 with a design degree. SINCE THEN I’VE FREELANCED, designed magazines, TAUGHT MIDDLE-SCHOOL ART AND WORKED AS THE VISUAL DESIGNER FOR AN INSURANCE COMPANY. I had MY SON IN 2007 AND PURCHASED MY FIRST HOME IN 2013.

Here we are
i love to hang with my 11-year-old who is obsessed with iron maiden. i like to get my hands dirty - in my garden. I like to experiment with New mediums to push the boundaries of my creativity and skills. I like to work with inspiring new people and discover new things.

THINGS I LOVE
my kid. Art. Gardening. Trinkets and doodads.
