I am a painter living and working in Nashville, TN. I attended the University of Mississippi where I earned a degree in art, and moved to Nashville shortly thereafter. I make abstract and expressionist paintings using acrylics, charcoal, oil pastels, and watercolor paints. The painting process has been a part of my life as long as I can remember, and has helped to shape who I am and the way I look at the world around me. My recent work is largely inspired by botanical shapes and the way the light interacts with them. Each piece is comprised of layer upon layer of color, each interacting with the next. My work comes from a place of gratefulness to God for the world and life He has given me, and I hope that my viewer feels a sense of peace and gratitude when looking at my paintings.
