While making art, I focus on form, efficiency, detail, how elements work together, and impact on others. My family and I go to Triune, a church in Greenville, SC that serves as a safe gathering space for homeless individuals and families. I incorporate my experiences with those living in poverty into my work. My art captures overcoming internal hardships and struggles to keep hope alive through the support of others and God. Through the years, my work transitions from poverty to the fitting together of elements, symbolizing the power of people. I focus on the concept of hidden treasures that are found within nature, if we take the time to look, leading to self-renewal. I am also using these overlooked elements of the environment to show the importance of conservation and sustainability.
