Title: “Torn Christ”
Description: Paper and glue on cardboard
I am originally from northeast Georgia. I studied painting at Asbury College in Wilmore, KY and moved to New York City in 2003, receiving my MFA from New York Academy of Art in 2005. The human figure has always been prominent in my work, and I have long been interested in and inspired by the history of sacred Christian art. I have paintings in many private collections, including HRH Prince of Wales and have exhibited work in group shows during the last 10 years around the U.S. In addition, I paint portraits on commission, dabble in collage, and have the honor of teaching high school art at Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice in downtown Brooklyn. I live and work in Brooklyn.
