Artist Statement

I’m from Fernandina Beach. A small and little known island in North Florida that’s better known as Amelia Island. My early influences were cartoons and I originally aspired to be an animator. I spent two years at SCAD to do so but have since developed more of an interest in portraiture… probably as a result of my foundation studies in traditional media there. I work primarily in graphite and pastel and use mostly people I know as models.
