ARTIST STATEMENT 

I have been enamored in drawing since I was young. My background is in drawing and painting where I received a degree from the University of Kentucky. Most of my pieces have an emphasis on line work and what can be conveyed by those lines. I try to evoke specific emotions in my work through line, color, and composition. For a long time I had been hard set on a paint brush or pen on paper. While in college and ever since I have sought after different types of "canvas" besides paper and other traditional canvases. I've tried a handful of things but my choice has become wood. This wood comes from old tobacco barns, distilleries, bourbon barrels, and anything else I can find locally. I reclaimed it, recycle and repurpose it. I clean them up and piece up a "canvas" and begin to create, still with a focus on my lines. The wood can speak to me when creating or I can treat it simply as my canvas for whatever my mind can concoct. With this same idea in mind of recycling and repurposing I have also began saving any and everything from my use of materials. I do this so I can return to them later to use the old image or use the randomness of a scrape piece of paper I was using for coloring testing to create something brand new. Trying to get the most out of my consumption of materials. My subject matter ranges from pop culture to our relationship with nature.
