Where are you from and where do you currently live? Born in Greenville, SC and I currently live in Charleston, SC. Is geography something you think about when it comes to your identity (i.e. do you think of yourself as a "Southern artist"?) I lost my Southern accent in college – possibly by watching tons of movies - not sure how it happened but it’s gone. Lately I’ve been returning to my roots through alt country music and Appalachian literature. It was important that I discover the South in my own way - not just through fried food, grits, or...

Where are you from and were do you live currently? I am from Miami, Florida a wonderful place to grow up. I live in New York City and my studio is in Brooklyn. Tell us a bit about the work in this show. These are flower drawings that I started making this Fall. The black ink stage goes really fast and the colored gouache part is really slow.

Where are you from and were do you live currently? I grew up outside Philadelphia, but I have lived in Baltimore on and off for the last 12 years. Where are the landscapes you paint? How do you select them? I have two bodies of work building right now. The first is a series on surface mines in West Virginia and Arizona. I first chose to visit mountain top removal coal mines in West Virginia because I was interested in the subject of surface mining as a metaphor for the relationship between humans and our environment. The coal mines in WV supply electric...
