Since the age of 4, painting has been my defining expressive outlet. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to have studied art with Alliance for the Arts in Ft. Myers, Florida and simultaneously take private lessons with Becky Arrants. My work has been on display while attending Covenant Christian School in Panama City, FL. Additionally; I have also attended art workshops in Kennesaw and Atlanta, Georgia.
Painting has served as a conduit and a reflection of my current state of being. During various challenges in my life, these tests have amplified my painting and thus overall artistic style. My motivations to paint are the joys of self expression and the therapeutic benefits of healing while absorbed in the creative process. I truly feel released from my pressures and life stresses when I am creating, healing art.
Modeling is another avenue in which I love to express my creativity. I have been modeling and promotional modeling since 2005 and appeared in several runway shows, print work, and jewelry designer websites. I’m probably most known for appearances with NyaNya Couture during a red-carpet fashion show event in 2009 to benefit and bring awareness to victims of domestic violence. I lent my talent as a runway model and art presenter of my art.
My other talents and gifts are singing, acting, and dancing. During my 16 years of performing arts experience, I have performed, created props, experimented with the technical side of theater, created sets, and have won several awards while doing so. I am a peer mentor and currently volunteer in youth arts programs and with Brenau Public Radio. I was formerly represented by The Block Agency out of Nashville, Tennessee. I have had the pleasure of working with top notch production teams and being extras in several commercials such as Delta Airlines, Revlon Hair Color featuring Sheryl Crow and appeared in videos with Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats”, Alan Jackson’s “Good Times”, Kellie Pickler’s “Red High Heels” and Matt Woods’ “Misconception.”
Finally, I am a licensed massage therapist specializing in the Healing Arts. A graduate of Soothing Arts and Healing Therapies in Destin, Florida, my most recent engagements involve:
• Iron Man Triathlon "Medical Massage Tent Volunteer"
• Walton County Fire Dept. "Benefits of Massage" Expo (Volunteer Chair Massage)
• Battered Women's Shelter Volunteer (Sharing Awareness of Appropriate Touch and the Benefits of Therapeutic Massage and Healing)
• Wyland Wailing Wall in Destin, FL (Volunteer Chair Massage) for Wyland and his team
• Spiriphysical Stone Massage Workshop by Bruce Baltz in Atlanta 2010
I have a wealth of experience in marketing, promoting and organizing huge events in the Atlanta area. My creativity as an artist, model, singer, dancer and actress has afforded many opportunities.
One of the most recent opportunities to exhibit my art at Habakkuk Center as well utilize my talents in other areas such as directing, writing, and acting. I look forward to sharing several of my art pieces during the upcoming 2012 Habakkuk Center fundraising event as an art exhibitor.
Please do not contact me unless you are a professional. I am very selective with whom I work. Anyone is welcome to leave a message, if you do not hear back from me immediately it is due to working on several projects at this time.
I DO NOT SHOOT NUDE.
A website is currently being formulated to display all aspects of the talents God has so graciously blessed me with. I look forward to sharing it with you soon
