This Texas gal showed an interest in art as a little girl and began managing a small art studio as a teen. She received a fine arts degree from Texas Tech (Wreck Em!) while working as a professional model and photographer. Her friends think she’s a gypsy because she easily gets cabin fever and often travels abroad to teach & study art. She is a full time middle school painting teacher, so art is her life! When she isn’t at work she enjoys hot yoga, time in the mountains with her husband and 3 huskies, reading books in her hammock, and singing Disney songs.
