Where are you from?

I was born in Newport, TN, but I now live in Knoxville, TN. I used to live in the country, but now I live in the city. <3 I love both. :)

What's your favorite thing to do?

I love being creative. My favorite things to work on, at the moment, are paintings. I feel so free, so at peace, when I'm painting. When I was a teen, I preferred drawing. I found painting so difficult that I would get frustrated and quit. Now, I really enjoy painting, and I find it a great challenge that keeps me moving forward, and experimenting.

Where did you go to school?

I went to a community college for 2 years, to study all my general education courses, but I also studied art history, sculpture, photography, and creative writing. After those 2 years, I went to a university and studied graphic design for one year, and decided that school wasn't for me. So, I enrolled in a technical school to get the skills I needed to become a graphic designer. I was there for a year and a half almost, when I was offered a job at a newspaper.
