I am a native born New Yorker, living down south in Atlanta, Georgia. I have had some of the most amazing opportunities in my life in regards to travel. I have had the pleasure of traveling to rocky coasts of Iceland, to the cornfields of France or the sandy beaches of Denmark and through it all, my experiences have shaped the person I have now become. I love traveling and of course writing my experiences in hopes for others to go out and live their dream. If I can put the idea or even paint a simple, but elegant picture into someone's mind, then I have know I have done something special. Inspiration is not always in the minds of the person looking out but possibly the person who may be looking back at you.

I am self taught. I drew a humpback whale at the age of eight. I didn't know I had any artistic talent until then, but once I started I didn't stop drawing. I developed a passion for fashion around the age of ten and started doing fashion illustrations as well as portraits. I have enhanced my skills through school and continually learning new techniques from other illustrators that I admire.
