I don’t remember ever not wanting to make art. It was the only thing I was remotely
good at as a kid – I was a disaster at sports, and academics were often a challenge.
In high school I assumed I’d do something else as a career, though – only nothing
else ever came to mind. When it came time to pick a college major I sort of felt like
it had already picked me.
I have a degree in visual communications from Auburn University, and went to the University
of South Carolina for graduate school in drawing.
Really, I’m happy to illustrate and also make work for gallery exhibition, both. It’s
gratifying to have *this* and *this* collide in a collage, and see what happens, and
if it is what I expected. It mostly doesn’t matter where the problem comes from. I’m
always grateful for a chance to collaborate with clients.
