I was born in a small town in southern Georgia and I've loved art since I was around the age of ten. Little did I know, my fourth grade art class would become the window to a new world.
Art is my entire life. I believe I’ve always had an eye for aesthetic and composition. Although I went to school for cinematography, studying composition, blocking and camera techniques created a deep passion in me for capturing images instead of video. Every photograph that I capture is a love letter to God, the original creator. I believe that art is sacred. It is so very holy, it’s messy, strategic and sometimes unexpected.
As it relates to film, I enjoy capturing architecture, nature and street photography. My work reflects the truth about the world around us, unedited, raw and vulnerable.
While shooting with film is very controlled in nature, painting is not. Painting requires a part of me that struggles to exist. I am unfortunately a perfectionist but with each canvas, I can never truly know the outcome.
I am painting poetry.
I am photographing truth.
