I am a self-taught artist in my fourth year of full-time studio work. After finishing graduate school in New York City, my husband and I moved to Austin, Texas, where I worked as an elementary and middle school art teacher from 2011 to 2014. In the summer of 2014, my husband's career took us to San Antonio so l decided to leave my teaching job to join him and develop my own studio practice during the year we would spend there.
During this year in San Antonio I focused on expanding my arts training at the Southwest School of Art and I was fortunate to receive an invitation to exhibit my work in my first solo show at 3rd Space Art Gallery in July 2015. My husband and I have since moved back to Austin where I continue to live and work as a full-time artist.
