“My interest in art history developed in high school. I love how images can tell us so much about the human condition – thoughts, feelings, struggles are all interwoven to communicate with people long after their creators have passed on. Art history certainly has a mystery to it and I have always been intrigued by the processes we take to bring their stories to light.”

Mattie worked as the assistant to the curator and interned at the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art in Biloxi. After earning her MA in Art History with a specialization in Museum Studies, she worked at the Mission San Luis Archaeological Site in Tallahassee, FL. Mattie is now the Director of Collections and Exhibitions of Ocean Springs’ Walter Anderson Museum of Art.
