Pen & Ink Illustrator
My art tells southern gothic stories. The illustrations embody my childhood influences growing up in the farmlands of Indiana and the backwoods of the Appalachian mountains. There, I heard tales of ghosts and spooks, moonshine bootleggers, and the rough and hard scrabble ways of folks just trying to survive. Combining this upbringing with inspiration from 19th century illustrators and woodcut artists, I ink out scenes of love, homesickness, self-discovery, death and humankind's relationship with nature. My meticulous lines unearth rich stories that seem to hover between times past and present.
