Where were you born? Year, Country, State. Where do you live currently?

 

I was born in Clarksdale, Mississippi in 1996 and currently live in Tutwiler, Mississippi...

 

 

What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures?

 

I have no clue... My mom tells stories of me trying to draw like da Vinci and instead doodling like Picaso ever since I was three...

 

Who is your favorite skateboarder, living or dead? Any ties to skateboarding?

 

I don't really have a favorite skateboarder or a skateboard!

 

Who is your favorite artist, living or dead? 

 

Living:Bradley Gordon (local MS artist)
Dead:Joan Mitchell

When you're not creating amazing works of art, what do you enjoy doing?

 

I am an Eagle Scout, so I help out with leading the local boys scouts during weekly meetings and outings. I also love to explore my local area and gather/salvage things to use as art supplies on future works. Plus I attend church regular and volunteer in my community and surrounding areas for worthy cause... anything to help...
 

 

Who are your biggest influences?

 

I grew up loving Van Gogh and Walt Disney as a kid... But I have to say now I admire John Wentz's, Keith Harring's, Georgia O'keef's, Bradley Gordon's, Andy Warhol's, and Bansky's work.

 

 

What mediums do you enjoy working in?

 

I enjoy using whatever medium that I feel like the subject of my artwork would best tell its story in; whether it be oil or acrylic paint, pen, sculpture, repurposed items, found objects, salvaged items, animal bones, or spray paint... I call myself a "Modern Experimental Artist" because of my love for using any and all mediums to tell an objects story through art.

 

 

Anything else you want to tell?

I also have a side business called Bone & Rust Art Co. where I take salvaged / found objects and repurpose them into works of art! I use real animal bones that I naturally find, old wood, salvaged scrap metal, and many more mediums and supplies to create amazing, one of a kind works of art. Most items and artworks have locally ties to history...
