I was born and raised a Southern gal from the small town of Siler City, North Carolina. I was always painting, snapping photos, drawing, cutting, pasting, and destroying magazines one-by-one. It wasn't long before I realized my passion for photography and all that it involves.
I studied Image Design at East Carolina University from 97-01. After graduation, I went to work for photographer, Jimmy Williams, as his digital imaging artist.
I retouched imagery for his commercial accounts as well as his personal fine art work and promotional pieces. Following that, I worked as a digital artist for McKinney Advertising in Durham, NC where I worked extensively on accounts such as Audi of America, Sony, Travelocity, and NASDAQ. I then moved out west to Austin, Texas to work for GSD&M, where I worked on BMW, Kohler, AT&T, Chili's, Wal-Mart, Southwest, and many others. I still reside in Austin, TX and am a freelance digital artist for local and national accounts.
I love what I do. I have been in this field for over 10 years and love working with people and helping them create their vision. I pride myself on being a Photoshop geek and am grateful that my passion for art and photography has brought me into this profession.
