Artist Statement

Stemming from my rural upbringing,  thick southern accent, and my love for story telling, my work utilizes text and language. I often use phrases,  jokes, fragments, and excerpts – that are autobiographical or commentary, while others are snippets of conversations taken out of context, or drawn from cultural references.

Oh and for good measure, I have included some other work as well.
