I am currently a BFA student at Fontbonne University in Saint Louis majoring in studio art. I received my AA & AFA at Southwestern Illinois College where I enjoyed volunteering at the Schmidt Art Center. At the Schmidt, I helped with installations, assisted with children's art classes, and was involved with the preservation and record-keeping of the college's permanent art collection.
If you're an artist/art student, don't forget to add a brief artist's statement and photos of three of your art works to either your "comment wall" or "text box." This is your basic St. Louis Art Directory information. Later you may add images, videos, post a blog, and much more.
As a student I am continually challenging myself to find ways to express my creativity through multiple mediums. I am particularly drawn to photography, painting, and especially clay sculpture. I am particularly motivated by my curiosity and enthusiasm for combining techniques between these mediums. While raising my family, I established a home-based business designing, fabricating, and installing custom window treatments; as well as assisting clients with accessorizing their living spaces. This experience has been beneficial to my progress as an artist. My focus as an artist is to translate emotion, energy, and movement in my work. I am never hesitant and am always searching out inspiration for my next piece, whether it be from another artist or from my natural or urban surroundings. In addition, I appreciate and try to incorporate the essence and beauty of the greater Saint Louis area (my home) into my work.
