I was born in New Jersey where I spent only the first six years of my life before my parents decided to make a move to Houston, TX for business. Houston is really where my affinity for art began. After graduating high school I was accepted to University of North Texas where I achieved my bachelors degree in fine art with a double major in water color and painting and drawing. Whilst working hard to achieve my degree I was also submitting my work into art shows all over Texas with some success. From there I knew the next step would be Graduate school and I have always wanted to be able to surround myself with other driven artist and I found that environment during my masters program at Pennsylvania academy of the fine arts. Here I was able to explore the world of textiles and find my love for the medium. Currently I just moved into a new studio and Iā€™m trying to find my way as a working artist.
