Tell us a bit about yourself, your background and your work
I went to art school in Savannah, GA with an interest in Cel Animation and Graphic Design.
What set you off as an artist?
I'm a sucker for the golden hours of dusk & dawn. Negative compositional space is a beautiful tool.
Tell us about the themes you pursue in your work
Happiness in solitude seems to surface quite a bit. A symbiosis with the elements, whether it be nature or manmade.
What art do you most identify with? any specific influences or research areas?
As a design director, I identify with a spectrum of styles and sensibilities, as is a requirement of the job. That said, I love large scale sculptures. Ron Mueck is a master!
Is there something you couldn't live without in your studio? what is your most essential tool?
That would have to be my Da Vinci Maestro Kolinsky Brushes. Just kidding. It's sad to say but, my damn phone.
Tell us how you organise, plan, and prioritise your work
After a shoot, I bring it all into Lightroom. From there, I look for sequences that tell a story.
How do you navigate the art world?
Not very well. I'm still new to the mindset of showcasing work and the hustle involved. It's a beautiful thing though :)
Describe the trajectory of your career as an artist so far
I've lived in the commercial motion graphics world for 15 years and have just recently taken a step back to create for myself.
Professionally, what is your goal?
I would love to participate in more group shows and continue to integrate photography in more client pitches. Maybe a solo show one day.
Are there any upcoming exhibitions or projects in the works?
I have a piece going up in San Francisco's Arc gallery in November. The exhibit is called Nocturne.
