I grew up in a small town in the Appalachian hills, with a close connection to the forms and patterns of the wilderness. At a young age I found work in the construction industry where I acquired a fascination with the notion of “progress” and the never ending cycle of construction and destruction. Later I worked as a patent illustrator, witnessing the constant stream of innovation and technological improvement flow through our office. My current work incorporates all of these ideas, investigating the meaning of human progress, and it’s unfolding role in nature.
I graduated from Ohio University in 2010 with a degree in painting and a minor in philosophy. Since then I’ve illustrated a children’s book called The Gnome Lexicon. I also spent two years working and drawing with the artists and activists at The Beehive Design Collective. I now live and work as an artist and illustrator in Eugene, Oregon.
