The agrarian and coal mining culture of Appalachia, where my ancestors have lived for generations, has inspired my work. My experiences and personal history have provided me with a firsthand view of mining communities, the natural world, and the culture of this specific region. This series focuses on the history of the land. based loosely on family photographs from different time periods, the paintings portray the interaction of man, nature and industry and their impact on the physical and cultural community.
