Artist Statement: 

As an artist, I create fine art imagery using a mix of film and digital imaging to share a continuous visual narrative with my audience. My work is primarily focused on capturing and documenting the Appalachian region and people of the Southeastern United States. Portraiture reveals the connection between myself and the subject, I relay their life experiences with dignity and respect. Still life work focuses on the Southern Gothic aesthetic, blending elements of regional storytelling and tradition into a visual narrative. I present my work with descriptive captions for historical purposes, I prefer to leave the visual interpretation of the narrative up to the viewer.
