Originally from the Mississippi Delta, and currently residing in Reno, Nevada, I have been exposed to culturally rich places full of fascinating artists all of my life. The Mississippi Delta, in particular, is known for having produced world renowned artists, writers, and musicians, and is a place where many artists continue their work. I attended college in San Francisco at the Academy of Art University and earned a Bachelor of Fine Art, which gave me the tools to better understand and a filter to better see the emerging artists of our generation. After my time in San Francisco, I moved to another “art town” to complete my MBA at the University of Nevada, Reno. This is from where I write about artists that contribute culturally to our everyday lives.
