Artist Statement
My work explores identity, outward appearances, and the manner in which we decorate ourselves. I paint abstracted portraits encrusted with oceanic forms, a nod to the decorator crab, which covers its body with whatever it finds within its environment to camouflage and protect itself.

I earned my BFA from Memphis College of Art in 2012 and have displayed my work in over 100 group and solo exhibitions throughout the mid-South. My solo exhibit, Decorators was named one of Memphis’s top ten visual art exhibits for 2013. I currently reside in Birmingham, AL with sculptor, Eric Quick and our ferocious daughter, Echo.
