Art has always been there for me and is an essential part of who I was, I am, and will be. I have drawn and painted for as long as I could remember and took art classesthroughout school. I attended Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, AR and graduated with a BA in art education. I have taught elementary art for eight years; four of those years were here in Conway.
Currently, I am working with watercolor and have been taking Shelia Parson’s watercolor class for the past three summers. I am drawn to this medium because it challenges me, and I have yet to discover all its possibilities. Although I do focus on realism within my work, I also want to capture the emotion and atmosphere of my subject matter and creatively convey that to others. Aside from watercolor, I have also worked with acrylics, printmaking, and charcoal.
