She specializes in fine art, currently lives and works in the Washington DC Metropolitan area where she teaches visual arts to students in grades K-12th to college transfers.

She attended MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) specializing in the field of Illustration, receiving a scholarship for her artistic achievement as a finalist in the Maryland Distinguished Scholars Program.
