Background

I am an abstract painter with a fondness for vibrant colors and oceanic forms.

I have displayed my work in over ninety-five group and solo exhibitions throughout the mid-South and my solo exhibit, Decorators was named one of Memphis’s top ten visual art exhibits for 2013.

I currently reside in Birmingham, AL with the sculptor and monster enthusiast Eric Quick and our ferocious daughter Echo.

Statement

My goal is to visually change objects and forms deemed ugly or untouchable by society to suit its standard of what beauty is, making a statement about the manner in which we decorate ourselves, covering up what is already there. My strong use of pattern and decorating suit this idea and add visual interest to the flatness and simplicity of the pieces while maintaining a focus on aspects of strong ornamentation and the exploration of what beauty is and what makes something pleasing to the eye.
