Hi! I'm an artist/teacher from New Orleans. I originally grew up in Chicago. I'm a little quiet, but bright and energetic and happy. In New Orleans, I live on my own with 2 big dogs and have 4 chickens out back next to my studio. I paint and work in mixed media, and I teach an advanced high school art program.
I haven't traveled much at all outside of the US, but over the summer of 2012 I will be traveling to Brazil to do some artistic research on a grant. I'm doing a crash course in basic Portuguese and will probably be toting around a sketchbook and taking a ton of pictures to bring back home with me!
