Hello, I am a picture maker from West Texas. I studied art and design at Texas Tech University in Lubbock. In 2011, inspired by photographs of the Dust Bowl, I traveled across the Texas Panhandle to gather a modest series named A Place Called Happy. I stayed at Navasota Artists in Residence in 2017. Today I live in Odessa where I run a darkroom, serve as an artist and craft archive-ready prints.

Inside a view camera, all appears upside down. Focus on often-overlooked details.
