Artist bio

To me creating is the closest contact I can get in connecting with God. It is a gift I use to share and inspire. Born is Upstate NY I was drawn to the South(no pun intended) living in Charleston and seeing the history as I drive past Boone Hall Plantation on my everyday drive to work. Passing the sweetgrass basket stands that still carry a tradition of art and soul. Thanking God everyday for my freedoms and gifts that have been given to me.


In God we Trust
