I grew up in the foothills of Greenville, SC and I can never remember a time
when art was not a part of my life. From a young age I was fascinated by
art and spent hours drawing on any surface available. Art is my passion
and my outlet. My thoughts are in constant motion as I take in the world
around me. The blend of stimuli that make up my experiences bent through
the prism of my interpretation. Art provides me an opportunity to try and
capture a still frame from this mental chaos and share it with others. I have
always been drawn to and influenced by the work of artists, past and
present, who break images down into basic elements and reconstruct them.
My hope is that my work causes an emotional or intellectual reaction in the
people that view it. My philosophy can be summed up in a quote by Picasso.
“I paint things as I think them, not as I see them.”
