Artist bio

My journey began in New York during my youth I would travel to the Met Gallery. My love for art and drawing grew during my advanced high school art classes. I then came to Atlanta and attended Spelman College. During my matriculation at Spelman I continued my art journey with classes as well as becoming involved in the Atlanta art community. By the end of my time at Spelman I decided to go to medical school. I became a physician and my art took a back seat.
However, during my maternity leave with my second child I began to paint again. I really fell back in love with Art. I began with creating acrylic paintings which has grown into having a studio and business Red Apple Art. My most recent interest is fabric and pattern design.
