I use various materials and art forms in the creation of my work. Because I am concerned about the environment, I utilize eco-friendly materials and processes.
As an award-winning artist, I have received numerous awards for my work. I received the 2019 City of Charlotte Placemaking Program Award - Beatties Ford Road Signal Cabinet Wrap Project. I was also selected in 2019 to create sound wall art for the Genesis Park Neighborhood Association Public Art Project. In 2015, my art was featured on a billboard in the Charlotte region through the ArtPop Street Gallery program. And in 2013 and 2012, my gourd art jewelry received first-place ribbons at the North Carolina Gourd Society Gourd Art Competition (see portfolio).
