I am a mixed-media, Atlanta-based studio artist attracted to the rough, rugged, and raw side of life. I see raw beauty in the elements of humanity that are often discarded and overlooked.
I combine photography, sculpture, and painting in order to fully convey this point. I believe it is my personal task to dissect, examine, and reveal the true beauty of these elements for everyone to see and appreciate.
Once I got to the Lamar Dodd School of Art at UGA, I soon realized that my artistic potential extended far beyond the photography I’d come to study. I fell in love with it all: painting, ceramics, woodworking, metalwork, video, and performance art. I grew up in Atlanta, and put some of the South into everything I create.
