I was born in New Orleans, LA on July 3. Growing up in both New Orleans and Pass Christian, MS, proved to be a very wealthy experience. I was able to experience life in a bustling metropolis such as New Orleans and at the same time was acquainted with living a more rural life in a small town. Straddling the two worlds created a well roundedness that proves itself to this day: participating in the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts’ classical violin program and processing the lessons about life and death hailing from New Orleans and living on a ranch brought.
In my work, I discuss the metaphysical, examining form and place through various media. In welding steel poles end to end and weaving them through each other, I discuss collective existence. Throwing paint at my substrate, I examine the exertion of control on what is essentially chaos. Pulling forms from that chaos proved that in order to succeed, one must release some control to gain more. Marrying various media, the available visual vocabulary is extended to have discussions on creation and collective existence.
I’ve built my career as a freelance art director, painter, graphic designer, and carpenter. I have contributed my talents to numerous film, television, and web projects.
