Meet the Maker:
WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
Originally from North Augusta, SC but raised by Downtown Augusta, Georgia. Now located in Chattanooga, TN. I’m a flooring designer as my 9-5….but any spare time is spent with my partner and our four cats and puppy dog.
DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS Journaling…sketching…hikes…trips…anything to get my creative process going. Even when I’m feeling uninspired; doing something is better than nothing, and usually it leads to some sort of creative outlet.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I’m obsessed with all things Wizard of OZ.
FAVORITE THING ABOUT DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA.
So much talent in one area. And the overall love and appreciation for the arts in the downtown area is noteworthy.
WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
I think it’s the overall affect design has on other individuals. Regardless of negative or positive…design makes a person think. I like that. Design is really an unselfish profession/approach. You’re doing it for someone else.
WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER ARTISTS + MAKERS?
Just keep at it. Regardless of what others say….if it makes you happy and keeps you sane…keep creating. We need it in this crazy world.
