originally from the southeast, i moved to brooklyn at 17 to study at pratt institute, and majored in illustration. i also concentrated on 3D design and sculpture, studying jewelrymaking/ silversmithing, ceramics and welding. my illustrations are often of cityscapes and new york city scenes, art history-inspired pieces (drawings of sculptures and objects from museums), tangle art, and portraiture. i do lots of pen and marker drawings, watercolor paintings, linocut prints and some mixed media. i design jewelry in precious metal clay, wire, and bead work. i knit and crochet accessories and sometimes sewing and clothing reconstruction.
