My interests lie in exploring social themes related to day-to-day living in Appalachia. Creating visual stories based on history and events I've encountered or have experienced. This region is unique, with its friendly people and its oppressive poverty both co-existing. Our environment will dictate how we live, so building these narratives into my work allows me to explore those concepts. Ultimately, my goal as an artist is to impart these themes into my work and connect on some level with the viewer.
Drawing upon my experience as a graphic designer, I follow the creed of “Less is More” in my paintings. Sound compositional structures are the underlying bedrock of my work.
