I grew up on the edge of the Appalachian Mountains in Greenville, SC. My dad’s parents lived in a cabin on a small lake, surrounded by mountains. My grandmother & I would walk in the woods, & she’d teach me the names of the plants. Then when it got too hot, we’d lay on inner tubes in the lake & look up at the quiet, cool hemlock trees. She, & many other relatives, are artists which means that I grew up doing art & making things. I drew, painted, took art classes and have continued ever since. More recently, I have begun working with wood. Growing up in the town where my family has lived for almost 250 years, I listened to my parents’ & grandparents’ stories about what the land used to look like & developed a strong sense of place and protection of the land. All of my work stems from this. Whether it is bringing attention to unseen flora & fauna or sustainably harvesting native wood to carve into spoons, my work reflects environmental concerns. I also reuse & repurpose materials in my work that I have recycled. This is my life and my work. I hope you enjoy it.
