Toni is a native New Orleanian and has spent most of her life there. Although she lived in different places the call to return home was strong. Early on it was evident that she possessed a flare for drawing. At the age of 15 she began designing logos for family and friend’s businesses. She had the distinction of designing the logo for the Alaskan Pipeline employee shirts worn in Camp Crazy Horse in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska! During summer breaks she worked at a screen print business cutting by hand the screens used to print on different items. After high school Toni went to work at a large printing company in their art department designing and hand drawing business forms. In the early 90’s Toni was hired by a nation wide print distributing company in the capacity of Office Manager. Seeing what was involved designing and producing items for commercial print she set about teaching herself the software used and the knowledge necessary to become a graphic designer. Today you can usually find Toni in her studio creating what she calls “fun art”. If you ask her she will tell you, “I don’t really have a style. I love everything, acrylics, pastels, impasto, charcoal and multi media. Sometimes I just want to fling some glitter around or perhaps a found object or two! I’m open to any form of art”.
