As an elementary school student in Western Kentucky I made elaborate valentine mailboxes every year, and once even created a paper mache mermaid without the coverage of a shell bra. (I’m sure my teacher was thrilled). Art was in my veins but I figured it wasn’t a practical thing to do so I should pursue something else. Luckily my instincts prevailed and I earned my degree in Art Education in 2003.
After college I moved to Charleston, SC to pursue my love of the beach as well as my teaching career.
