I have always found inspiration in religious art and imagery. I would go to Catholic churches with my friend in Pennsylvania and always found the churches to be beautiful, ornate, and peaceful. While in Pennsylvania I was around the Amish and Pennsylvania Dutch and spent a lot of my childhood with my German grandmother. Once we moved to the south, I became engulfed in Southern Gothic novels and my affinity for low country only grew. I began traveling and fell in love with the eeriness and cultural melting pot of southern Louisiana. All of this is brought together with my love of music and tattooing. While I have never tattooed, I have been fortunate enough to be a part of the community and learn skills and techniques used in the tradition. Painting is how I process the things I love, the things that inspire me, the things that have hurt, and the things I don’t understand. It is all an amalgamation of my skills, my culture, and my own life.
