Growing up with a mother who created life-sized bronze sculptures in our living room, I knew I was destined to be an artist in some capacity.  It’s in my blood.  I fell in love with photography and jewelry design as a teenager and continued to photograph throughout college. I graduated with a BFA from the University of Central Florida in 2005 and a MFA in Fine Art Photography from the University of Florida in 2008.  I have worked as a designer and chalk artist for Whole Foods Market for the last nine years. In my free time I design book covers & custom graphics and create jewelry from found vintage and antique brass pieces.  I currently live in downtown Tampa with my husband and Chi Tzu, Chi.
