“I am continuously investigating identity through place and looking for commonalities as they relate to the larger, outside world. The south is an intoxicating place to make work, with its complicated past, and lush landscapes that incorporate but also resist economic and social change. People are constantly fascinated with the south and are curious about what it’s like to actually live here. Much of my identity is now a hybrid of two drastically different geographic and cultural landscapes; both have come to define who I am to this day. It is this melding of place and identity that continuously drives my work.”
