I'm still finding my way.

I am a self-taught artist from Charlotte, NC. Born in Columbia, SC; I have enjoyed drawing and painting for as far back as I can remember. Only recently have I felt a passion and mission behind what I'm creating, and out of that came a desire to share in the conversation of art and culture going on around me.

As an avid outdoorsman, I feel a real and personal connection with God when I'm on the water or hiking to an overlook. Sometimes it's the paddle through a marsh or the rocky trail that inspires more than the overlook or the fish on the hook, however, there's always a story to tell.

My desire is to create images that inspire adventure while capturing and conjuring up past emotions.

For me, my most inspired pieces come from a place I camped or a day on the water that I can't get out of my heart or mind. For you, maybe it's that old Bronco you drove or the perfect golf shot.

It's a personal connection to an image that really drives the visual conversation and while I'm not great with words, hopefully some of my work can do the talking.
