Artist

As a contemporary southern artist and former native of Mississippi, I was inspired to learn to draw at the impressionable age of 8. I don’t ever remember a time after that when I didn’t have a pencil and paper at hand. After numerous life changes, I was inspired once again. It was then when I took a leap into functioning sculptures that have a “Steampunk” feel. The sculptures mimic the flow of a working steam machine placing them in a class of their own that I like to call “Science Fiction Steam”. At the heart of each piece lays a clock that serves as a heat source for the steam machine; the collection is appropriately named the “TIME” collection.

Recently, I have branched off to include stationary sculptures with my first being “The Power of 3”. The drive to create in me is unimaginable at times and the ideas flow seemingly every day within my head. I always jump at the chance to grab something to put into a piece and I also stop to take the time to take a photo when I see the opportunity. I hope you can take the time to feel the emotions and love I put into every section of every piece I have created. Also, please take the time to view my photos in my eyes as an artist.
