I am striving to add my voice to a rich southern vocabulary through measured craft and familiar form. Like the great writers of the South, I employ metaphor, Southern vernacular and Gothic imagery to reflect start Southern places that are simultaneously haunting and sublime. My current work employs a modified form of traditional woodworking called marquetry. Each piece is a study of the Southern landscape, home, family and fragments of its beautiful complexity.
