Artist, illustrator, writer, explorer
I’ve always been an artist, beginning when I was young and drawing cartoons. I was born in Alabama, lived all over the South, and traveled everywhere. Along the way, I found inspiration from architecture, nature, roadside Americana, graphic design and illustration, and the painted signs gently fading on old walls. My block prints of Alabama landmarks, which became hot collectibles for a time in Birmingham, have been featured on HGTV; in Readymade, Birmingham, and B-Metro magazines; in the popular WBHM 90.3 pint glass series; and on Alabama's state tourism website. Today I continue to live, create, and work in Birmingham as editor of UAB Magazine, the flagship publication of the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
