About Me

Here's a little bit about me; my husband and I live in Dover, Florida- about 15 miles east of Tampa. Prior to that, I lived in Wisconsin for half of my life and California for about a year while I completed my graduate degree in San Francisco at Academy of Art University. I have a master's in fine art, majoring in animation and visual effects.  While attending AAU, I mostly studied 3D animation texture/lighting, matte painting, and compositing. The focus of my thesis was a 3D animation feature style cg texture and lighting animated piece. I love the magic of transforming a scene into a place of emotion and captivating an audience. When I'm not doing artwork, I'm mostly outside playing; whether it's horseback riding, tennis, frisbee sports, or inline skating- I love outdoor activities. I'm always ready for another adventure. Pet care has forever been one of my primary interests aside from art. My husband and I own a successful pet food store in Belleair Bluffs, Florida called Munchies Natural Pet Foods.  My life is dynamic and very fulfilling to say the least.
