What is your training?

Art has always been a true love of mine. While in college I studied figure drawing in Florence, Italy for a summer and later received a BFA from Ole Miss with an emphasis in ceramics.

What inspires you and your designs?

I am inspired by moments in life. There can be joy and sadness and courage and fear all within a moment in time. My work is centered around capturing those moments and it is up to the viewer to decide what emotions they feel is in each piece. Texture, color, functionality, and line quality all inspire me and are important aspects of my expressive artwork. 

What is your favorite piece? 

Early in the Morning 36x36 Caroline Boykin

My favorite piece changes all the time. The recently created “Early in the Morning” has my heart at the moment. It is filled with movement and sass and invokes a lot emotions.

How has the your area influenced your work?

The south is a huge influence to me. Southern women and flora are constants in my work, there is much complexity to both!
