A brief biography

I have been a professional artist in many fields for over 13 years. I remember at the age of five making the decision that I wanted to be an artist. I took many figure drawing, still life, and painting classes at a young age. I received my Bachelors in Fine Art in Painting, and my Associates in Illustration at Rochester Institute of Technology. A couple of months after I graduated I had the opportunity to work as a scenic artist at GeVA theater. This experience opened a new and exciting world to me, and I was well suited for the fast pace, and versatile environment. After a year working at GeVA, I moved to Montgomery, Alabama to work at the award-winning Alabama Shakespeare Festival. Again, my world was opened up even more to so many new skills and techniques. I took those skills and used them to start working in commercial and residential places in the area. I was commissioned to do murals, faux finishes, and even created furniture pieces to look aged and distressed.
The turning point came in my life when my first son, Quillan was born. I had to make a decision between the theater, or my decorative painting business. I bravely decided to go with my decorative painting business, and SLC Decorative Painting was born. Shortly after, my husband, my new baby boy and I decided to move to Louisville, Kentucky. I was well received already starting out working with the top designers in the area. The ball started rolling from there. I have been absolutely blessed by the opportunities people have given me, and I am grateful every day to love what I do, and do what I love.
