CRAFTSMEN’S GUILD of MISSISSIPPI
Exhibiting Member

I speak with candor and a slight Southern accent, and my art reflects those same tendencies, whether capturing a building or a bee.

As a Mississippi native, I grew up surrounded by stories and music that often conveyed serious truths by way of circuitous routes.

As someone who was raised in a political family and who later obtained an undergraduate degree in religion, I have always been fascinated by the power of myth and imagery to both illuminate and inspire, obfuscate and oppress.

Influenced by both the Arts and Crafts movement and East Asian woodblock printing, my work often features Southern flora and fauna laced with subtle social commentary. After a little Maker’s Mark gets in my system, I like to think of my work as the love children of Walter Anderson and Flannery O’Conner.

Thanks for your interest and support.
