I was born in Leland, Mississippi and I grew up in Bienville National Forest near Morton, Mississippi until I graduated from Morton Public High School. I then furthered my college education at Christ For the Nations Institute in Dallas, Texas, where I received and Associate of Arts degree in theological studies. I then transferred to Southern California College (now Vanguard University of Southern California) in Costa Mesa, California, where I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature. I have spent the greater portion of my adult life as a medical education librarian at Mississippi Baptist Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi. I also have worked in the public library systems in both Hinds and Rankin counties in Mississippi.
I started painting in 2005 and I am self-taught. My paintings are created in acrylic pigments. I also use mixed mediums of sculpting plaster, paper, stone, wood, etc. on canvas as raised relief artworks. The themes of my paintings are a mix of realism, abstract and non-objective methods. I also write poetry and assign a poem to each painting that I create. I love the convergence of language and visual images-infusing the works of art with metaphor and symbolism.
