About Fudge

I was raised in Fort Smith, Arkansas and moved to the Memphis area in 1995. Later I attended the University of Memphis and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art degree in 2003. My day job is graphic design but my passion is painting and connecting with local artists.

I volunteered at The Stirring as the Senior Artist and Gallery Manager for 9 years. My duties included finding artists to paint on stage during the service, connecting with other artists and artist groups, reviewing and hanging art in the gallery, promoting openings, writing press releases for the exhibits, etc. 

Bachelor of Fine Arts, with special emphasis on Graphic Design from University of Memphis; Memphis, Tennessee. Graduated magna cum laude (with high distinction) in May 2003.
