I grew up in Possum Kingdom, South Carolina, and I have been making art since I could hold a pencil. Visual imagination has always fascinated and inspired me with a profound desire to constantly create.
After a high school trip in AP art class to study art in Italy and Paris, visual art had sunk its teeth in even deeper. I attended Clemson University to study parallel tracks in architecture and art. After three years of study, in a somewhat unexpected turn, I left to pursue a full time career in my other passion, writing and music, performing with NEEDTOBREATHE.
Even then, in a full time music career, my artistic inspiration had found its way into a wide range of expression—from album artwork, design, and packaging to stage production, merchandise design, and creative direction for music videos, photo shoots and design campaigns.
Throughout the many travels and tours across the US and abroad, I decided to take my art with me and continue to create for myself in any space I could find. This practice has been both cathartic and inspiring and I am excited to share this part of my private creations with everyone.
I currently live and create in Brentwood, Tennessee.
