Nashville, TN | Painting
Born in Independence, Mo. Lives and works in Nashville, TN. I work with materials I have in excess and on hand. I visually document shared space, time, memories and experiences with media from fabrics to found objects. In 2012 I founded Ground Floor Gallery + Studios, a non-commercial gallery and studio collective that curates varied contemporary exhibitions, host open studios, and participates in Arts & Music at Wedgewood/Houston.
I cycle through different works pushing boundaries in regards to my technique and materials. For the last 5 years I have been using food coloring and unconventional "spray-painting" methods on a variety of surfaces to make up several concurrent series titled, UnWinding Sheets, Conversations, and Artificial Comfort, dealing with identity and self preservation.
