Born and raised in the South, the dark history and unique culture of southern life both haunt and inspire me. My curiosity towards human beings, and how moments of struggle, pain, triumph, and beauty are forces that seem to unify us all, led me to intimately explore people through portraiture. From homeless veterans to historical underdogs, I choose subjects from the fringes of the familiar. Using life-like detail and scale, I aim to give the silent a voice, to tell their story, and to encourage viewers to confront and connect to people with which they otherwise might not interact.
