It all started when I was a little girl growing up in South Carolina. With a household of artists, I was given the exposure to a creative world of imagination and color. Fast forward to the college days, I went on to receive a BA in Studio Art and a BA in Art and Architectural History from College of Charleston. I still live and work in Charleston and am a resident artist at Redux Contemporary Art Center.
The subjects of my paintings tend to reside within the everyday—specifically in the landscapes around us or the faces of people we may not notice very often. I make an effort to capture someone's facial expression or a specific landscape in real-time. Keeping the colors alive, I often use a non-finito technique while trying to view each piece as a continuing rhythm of work.
