A Practice in Patience

About

My art is a practice in patience. It is intricate, but my intention is very simple. The time I spend on my pieces are my form of therapy. I use nature as my inspiration and each detail I put into my pieces is a small portion of the web that makes up our chaotic life.

My creative approach—no matter the medium—is to find the calm in the process of detail. My art is a practice in patience. It is intricate, but my intention is very simple. The time I spend on my art is a form of therapy. I use nature as my inspiration, and each detail I put into my pieces is  a small portion of the web that makes up our chaotic life.

I majored in Sculpture with a concentration in Printmaking and Art History from Savannah College of Art and Design. After working in the service industry for many years and keeping my art as my side job, I am now able to focus on creating full time. I live out in the county with goats, chickens, and too many cats. Surrounding myself with nature has allowed me to nurture my creative process.   

For me, creating art is not necessarily about saying something. I'd rather have viewers step back from their messy lives and get lost in the small details that make up the bigger picture.  I hope that others are able to spend time with these pieces and allow them to bring a sense of calm and tranquility. The same way serving drinks can offer a little bit of relief to the patrons, I hope my art can make people calm down, take a step back, and enjoy the beauty of what is around us.
