I am an artist, educator, and photographer living in Cleveland, Ohio. Through my artwork, I seek to elicit ideas addressing experiences of everyday life and the constructs of subjective knowledge by utilizing the means of making, the formal display, and the contemporary discourse regarding photographs. I received a 2017 Individual Excellence Award Grant from the Ohio Arts Council. In 2016, I was selected to execute a public art commission resulting in a 20ft. x 30ft. mural; awarded a Baie Ste Marie Residency in Nova Scotia, Canada; and selected as a winner of Life Framer's "Street Life" theme. My work has been exhibited via solo exhibitions, curated group exhibitions, and juried group exhibitions. Magnum Photos photographer Bruce Gilden recently described my work as "visually distinct, and quite challenging" with "a depth of ideas." I began producing commercial photography in 1993, teaching college level photography courses in 1998, and have always made artwork. Born in Mississippi, raised in Northeast Ohio, I earned an AA from Lakeland Community College, a BA in Humanities from Ursuline College, and a MFA in Studio Arts from Maine College of Art.
