Tell us about yourself
I began painting in high school (Lafayette, Louisiana) and my first commission was portraits of The Beatles – which I used to pay for guitar lessons. My mother is a wonderful portrait artist who inspired me to continue along that path. I went on to study art at Florida State University, Lamar University and The University of Texas at Austin, where I earned a Bachelor of Fine Art. I also worked as a professional scenic artist for The Dallas Ballet, The Dallas Opera and The Dallas Theater Center as well as the State Theater in Austin.
