Artist Statement


Artist Bio

As an artist, I am interested in creating a visual commentary on low-brow American culture and folklore through portraiture. The characters featured in my images, whom I employ to explore issues of excess and over-indulgence in American culture, are part of a very specific narrative. I am greatly influenced by stories and cultural situations of the South and am particularly interested in the social roles assigned to Southern women. Using truck stop waitresses, pageant queens and Texas matriarchs as my muses, I aim to reveal the absurdity and paradoxical nature of Southern culture.
