My artistic talents were first discovered at the age of three, when I was found creating a mural on the dining room wall with a pastry brush and a can of Crisco. Although the work itself was never fully appreciated by my parents, my interest in art was. They quickly gave me a better canvas and more appropriate supplies. My passion for art grew, and I earned a BFA in studio art from the University of Texas in Austin, where I live now with my husband, son and good dog Archer.
