I am a Connecticut native but love the heat and hospitality of the South! I studied animal science at UGA and have a passion for the veterinary field. My life took an unexpected turn after a nerve injury affected my right and dominant hand. In 2018, I began painting with my left hand as a positive outlet. Although initially very challenging, I found great fulfillment and felt a new sense of purpose.
I paint with acrylics and all of my work is based on animals and places I have seen, and holds significant meaning to me. I love sharing my paintings with others, and I genuinely appreciate all of those who have supported me!
