bio

I am from the Carolina's and have a background in K-12 education. I received my BA from Coastal Carolina University in Conway, SC. With a strong background in traditional drawing media and subject matter, I am now exploring drawing expanded into three-dimensional installation. I am an MFA candidate at UNC-Chapel Hill and will graduate in May 2018.
