While receiving my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Drawing and Painting from the University of Southern Mississippi, I quickly realized that learning how to draw was undoubtedly about learning how to see the intimate details of our surroundings. As a two-time recipient of the Foundation Art Scholarship Award, I have worked diligently to develop a purposeful insight to understanding the concepts of drawing and design. Being able to draw is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. It helps you to appreciate and value so many wonders that exist around us. As children, we innately experience art with such a pure and honest approach. I am excited to help foster these elements as we continue to harvest the vitality of the human spirit.
