About me

Location Memphis, TN, United States
Introduction I was born in Beaufort, South Carolina and moved to Memphis at an early age. I have called Memphis home ever since. As a southern girl I draw inspiration from my surroundings and from my memories of growing up in the south. I think back to traveling to Mississippi to visit cousins and grandparents. Days were spent being lazy, watching the cows being milked and eating homemade applesauce. I can remember fields of cotton that seemed to go on for miles. Everything was so simple and I love to reflect that state of mind in my art. In addition to the country I also love to use coastal influence in my art. My husband is also from a coastal town. We love trips to the beach, seafood and warm weather. It is something we try to expose our 4 children to as much as possible. I grew up drawing, painting and creating. It is in my blood. I believe that art should come from deep within and reflect your inmost thoughts and feelings. Art is how I keep my sanity, how I release tension and how I have fun. I can't imagine life without it. It is my hope that my paintings will bring life and happiness to the homes of others.
