       I was born in 1974 in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. I grew up with foster parents and attended Missouri School for the Blind. I did some art while in school, mostly painting, or cutting and gluing paper while listening to music. Since I started coming to FLS, I have been introduced to many different art materials and I have made friendships that are important to me. I especially enjoy making "weird" experimental music in the recording studio with Nick and Kenny. To make 2D art, I prefer to use drawing materials that I can feel on paper, including crayons, oil pastels, watercolor pastels, and ballpoint pens. When I make jewelry, I am able to make repetitive patterns based on feeling different shapes of beads. Printmaking class with Julianne is also one of my favorite activities, I carve lines into foam for relief printing, and help pull ink on the screen-printing press. During all of these activities at FLS, it is important to me to socialize with my friends, and listen to music for inspiration.
