Hello again my friends! I am still at Mississippi College working on my Masters of Fine Arts. Things are going great! I even had a religious revival as well!!! I will be up loading all my art work and am happy to say my 2 shows at Cups Cafe in Clinton Mississippi went great! I sold paintings, mostly the ones with peacocks in them, and made some money for charity. I am working to buy a camel for a family in Asia. I am working through the gospels of Asia ministry. I will be entering a papermaking show this November and hopefully sell some art there as well. I am dedicating my art to God. I can not rely on self promotion for the sake of getting famous as an artist. My goal has never been to be popular. I am an art teacher and was called to be an art teacher. i am now 26 years old and ready for this new chapter of my life! I will also have art work in a hospital show coming up soon. I am currently working on these things:
1. Thesis- this means writing a looong paper much like a book.
2. making 16 shadow box art work assemblages from nostalgic found objects for thesis show
3. Drawing class- drawing pets
4. Illustration class- make and publish a children's book by December
5. Studying God's word
6. Making art for shows and selling art for money for Gospels of Asia charity
7. Helping to save people from themselves
Hello! I just decided to come back to posting more on DA! Woot! I am still at Mississippi College in Clinton MS working on another masters degree. I got my M.E.d and am currently working on the M.F.A. So now I have a bachelors of fine arts, A masters f education, and working on a masters of fine arts. I will be teaching some time soon hopefully. But for now I am loving my studio in the art department that the teacher's gave me. I have all my most current work up in galleries around the area and lots of art at the Cups cafe and Peminto's cafe as well. I have artwork in the health complex and just won some amazing awards for my newest pastel works. I am one of the members of a group of graduate student's on campus who are starting a show case for our artwork this month. I am working in every imaginable medium and have grown a lot! I'd love to erase a lot of my old art here on DA. I shall upload new stuff asap!
I am still working hard on my M.E.d. I will be graduation with this Masters of Education this December! Then I will move onto the M.F.A. the Masters of Fine Arts. I need to upload all my literally hundreds of new papermaking works, mixed media paintings, watercolors, and pastels!
I graduated from college with my bachelors of fine arts degree a few days ago! For a graduation gift i got a Wacom tablet!!!
And Corel painter 12!!! Now I can make art in the styles I want and not have to worry about wasting paint and supplies. I swear I have to spend $1,000 a semester on my art supplies just about so this will cut the cost!
OMG! I won 1st and 2nd place in my division of the art show at Mississippi College at the Gore and Spagh gallery!!! WOOT! So glad! Now I'm getting ready for the show in April coming up like..in 2 weeks...it is the student show for research classes. It will be me and 5 others in the show. I am doing a series of birds in various sizes. I REALLY need to post my new art...have not posted anything new in like a year!

Hey I can't believe I have been gone so long!!! I have an apartment set up in Clinton MS for my Masters degree.
I will be getting my Masters of education first as it turns out and then move on to get my Masters of Fine Art. As of the end of this Winter term I will secure my BFA with the teacher's certification!!! I couldn't be happier! My art style leans more towards polymer clay steampunk hearts made with gears. I am also on Facebook now as of this past year... finally. I have been busy lately with my baby niece and nephew, cleaning house, studying,making and selling more art, and trying to finish student teaching. Sorry I have been away for so long but college is not easy sometimes. Anyways, glad to be back!
