Born Rocky Mount, NC 4/11/1977. Moved to Plant City, Florida in 1978-1995.
I have been making art since childhood. Mother and grandmother are both talented artist's and they encouraged my talents. I'm interested in creating cartoon worlds that suggest parallel narratives to our own objective reality, through archetypes and mythic stories.
In my process I use collage and printmaking as starting points toward a painting. The imagery evolves/devolves continuously throughout its creation, characters emerging out of coffee stains or ink spills, only to be painted over by a abstraction or another creature.
Lives and works in Wallingford,PA.
Work / Education
Studied drawing and printmaking with Robert Rivers at UCF in Orlando, Fl. 1996-2001. Received BFA in Drawing. BA in Photography. Attended PAFA from 2002-04 mastered in drawing and painting.
During these formative years I learned how to 'see' by drawing from life and realized a process that I could carry with me for my entire art career/life.
