I am a
multi-media artist whose work examines identity, history, and popular culture.
As a native of Charleston South Carolina, I’ve gained the knowledge of local
tradition and craft that are often used to comment on Charleston's social
2015), I illustrated a series of shootings that occurred throughout Charleston
between September of 2013 and February of 2014. These works were an
orchestrated collage of ancestral symbolism, pop-culture iconography and local
craft. The Charleston Palmetto Rose was the primary material and what I label
as, "a tool for engagement", drawing my audience closer to events
often dismissed as commonplace.
My work alters between
celebration and revulsion. I hyperbolize self-expression, as seen in his
Precious Metal series, while igniting a discussion in cultural complexity.
