I knew I was born to be an artist ever since I first held a crayon and my love for art grew as I did through my years as a student. I went on to study at the Maryland Institute, College of Art in Baltimore.
In 2005 my childhood friend and I opened 2 Hot Art Chicks Gallery in Hampden. This business venture would be the seed that would eventually rekindle my desire to be an Artist Entrepreneur.

I currently work as a full time artist out of my home studio in New Freedom, Pennsylvania
