Artist Statement:

I started painting a few years ago to battle the stress of my corporate branding job (ok, I was an intern, you caught me), but it was still really stressful. I have a bachelor of International Relations, and a post graduate degree in Graphic Design and Branding from the Portfolio Center in Atlanta. I lasted about one year in the New York branding world before I threw in the towel and started trying to make a living by painting.

I live in Atlanta, GA with my husband and two sweet doggies. We are decorating and remodeling our 100 year old bungalow in a leafy intown neighborhood, and documenting it on my blog, go on, be a voyeur. I work out of a studio in Decatur, Georgia (famous for not allowing science books to have the theory of evolution in them, recently ya’ll, like in 2005)…also famous for its large and vibrant lesbian population, so it all balances out I guess.
