Art has been a consistent part of my life since I can remember. My childhood weekends were spent in art galleries, museums, and performance halls. Luckily, not a whole lot has changed.

While painting will always be my first love, I'm process-driven and love experimenting with materials. I work primarily in large formats that marry painting and sculpture. My work is an exploration of movement and emotion, and strives to create a viewing experience that mirrors a similar energy.

 

I Received my BFA  from the University of Mississippi in 2018. I'm currently living and working in Dallas, TX.
