Lives & works in Richmond, VA

 

My creations investigate the divisions between fact and fiction, self-perception and otherness, adaptation and stagnancy, and survival and prosperity. I am currently focusing this study through the lens of personal histories involving rural domestic spaces, masculine relationships, Christian ideologies, urban legends, and reoccurring dream sequences. My work spans painting, drawing, sculpture, video, and installations often combining said mediums.
