I am from the Florida Keys. I grew up free-diving the amazing coral reefs & this inspired me to begin painting by the age of 5.
I was self taught in all painting mediums, and won my first Scholarship at 16 to the Ringling School Of Art.
At 18, I won a Scholarship to study in Italy through Miami Dade College & FIU.
I now do Art Shows for a living & have won many awards (can provide list if needed). I have been featured on PBS Television "Art Loft" Series that features unique artists.
To this day I still paint Florida Keys sea life & create colleges using found objects & legally obtained,domestic bird feathers.
I hope that you find my work as a peaceful place to rest your eyes in the hectic life of an embassy.
Thank you for your consideration,
