"I'm a 32 year old native of Woodson, Texas where I grew up painting and crafting with my mother Bonnie, who is also an artist. I spent the last thirteen years in California working in the Specialty Costume and Makeup FX industry, but have just this year moved back and returned to painting on fabric and canvas. I am lucky enough to spend most of my time surrounded by nature, which is the inspiration for most of my artwork.  However, the painted fabric pieces for this exhibition were strongly influenced by some time I spent living in India last year and the exposure I had to their spirited and colorful culture."
