After the birth of my first child, I decided to change career paths and established Couture Cakes, Inc., a custom cake bakery. In 2014 I participated in the Museum of Design Atlanta's exhibit, The South's Next Wave: Design Challenge where my co-creators and I won Best in Show. In 2016, I appeared on Food Network's Cake Wars Paddington Bear episode. After sixteen successful years in the culinary business I made the decision to pursue an MFA in painting at Savannah College of Art & Design in Atlanta. In 2016, 2017 and 2018, my work was accepted into Artfields, a juried exhibition in Lake City, South Carolina. For my painting, Ringleader (2016) I received one of ten Merit Awards. I was also selected for the 2018 Atlanta Portrait Society’s Fall Juried Art Exhibit and SCAD's 2018, 2019, 2020 Open Studio Exhibit. In 2020, I received the Chelko Foundation Endowed Scholarship based on a review of my portfolio. I will complete my MFA in the spring of 2021.
