I was born in California, spent a few years in the middle states before arriving in Jacksonville, where I was so glad to be near the ocean again! I finished my college degree at University of North Florida with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I have experimented in many fields before I found my love of acrylic painting. The beauty of this world is what I aim to capture — it’s where I can get into the “zone” and enjoy creating.
