I was born in Lubbock, Texas at Reese Air Force Base in 1966. I grew up in Fort Worth, Texas and graduated from Southwest High School in 1985. I attended Texas Tech University from 1985 to 1989. I received my BFA in Art (Painting and Drawing) in 1989. I am a lifetime member of Alpha Phi Omega and Golden Key National Honor Society at Texas Tech University. My BFA Exhibit at Texas Tech was featured on the front page of The University Daily, March, 1989. I moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1989 after graduating from my family’s alma mater. I attended The University of New Mexico. I graduated from The University of New Mexico with a Masters in Art Education (Museum Education, Ceramics, and Photography) in 1994. While I attended UNM, I exhibited my art in The Art Education Gallery inside Masley Hall in The College of Education. I attended CNM (Central New Mexico Community College) and obtained my ATLP in Special Education in 2014. I was also inducted into Phi Theta Kappa Honor Fraternity. I currently live in Albuquerque, New Mexico after living in California for 12 years. I moved to The Land of Enchantment in 2009 and work for Albuquerque Public Schools in The New Mexico Pre-K Program at Mark Twain Elementary School. During this time, I continue to focus on creating my artwork. I combine my painting and drawing skills upon the surface of my paintings. My painting, Brighter Days Ahead, was recognized by The 2020 Taos Art Insurgency Committee and selected for Director’s Choice. This painting along with my other painting, Singing Out To The Skies, was exhibited in The Protagonists Exhibit in The Wilder Nightingale Fine Art Gallery, July, 2020, Taos, New Mexico.

I have also exhibited at The South Broadway Cultural Center, The Albuquerque Museum, The Anderson-Abruzzo International Balloon Museum, The Matrix Gallery, David Naylor Interiors, The Gallery With A Cause (The New Mexico Cancer Center), and The Tortuga Gallery. My work was featured in online nationwide and international art exhibits. I am also a member of The Biafarin Company in Ontario, Canada. And now, I continue to create my coloring books for Amazon.
