I’m from Chattanooga, TN and graduated with a degree in 2D studio art from the University of Tennessee Knoxville. I spent several years studying architecture before pursuing a degree in art. Consequentially, my aesthetic preferences and approach to making art were shaped by my early interest in design. I quickly gravitated towards creating intricately layered tape paintings influenced by the theoretical endeavors of surrealism and abstract expressionism. Additionally, my interest in shamanism is my underlying inspiration resulting in work that is idiosyncratically psychedelic.
