Framed Art - You wouldn’t think it by looking at me, but I was raised on a horse ranch in the incredibly rural Matagorda County, Texas. From those humble roots I have traveled far and wide, being fortunate enough to graduate from Texas A&M University and to see a fair portion of this ever shrinking Earth. It is from my travels that I gained a love for adornment; every culture has their own unique form. My works are largely constructed from rarefied and vintage materials that I collect from equally unusual origins. I amass odds and ends from antique shows, junk shops, estate sales, old warehouses, gem shows, foreign destinations, and from the natural world around us.
