I was born and raised in Midland, Texas. I came to Austin to attend UT, after short detours through San Antonio and London, England. I started out as an art major, but graduated with a degree in Fashion Design from UT. Since then, I have worked as costume designer, a bridal gown designer, a visual merchandiser, and an artist while continuing to take art classes in drawing, painting, and pottery. In my spare time I enjoying painting, collage, encaustics and now, 3D modeling and rendering. I am a hard-core ‘casual’ gamer, with a love of vintage clothing and a passion for science fiction.
