TrulyTruman began long before this shop opened; when I fell madly in love with a Yorkie-Poodle-Who-Knows-What puppy named Truman. He was my first partner in crime and his rambunctious personality and heart-stoppingly cute face inspired my first pet portraits. Truman passed away in a tragic accident when he was just two years old but he is alive and well in all of my art!
I attended the School for the Creative and Performing Arts in Lexington, KY followed by the University of Kentucky & University of Central Florida for my undergraduate and graduate degrees.
Over the past ten years I have traveled the country teaching, drawing, and writing-- my children and I have settled in Knoxville, TN where I am finally able to create art full time!
I can't wait to get to know you and create some art together!
