I am a full time artist working out of my studio in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The name of my business, Twenty Two West, comes from a place that inspires me – the address of the home where I grew up in Greenville, South Carolina. My goal is to use traditional crafts combined in new ways in each of my pieces. I use the classic techniques of weaving, ceramics, and woodworking to create wearable art and to build approachable sculptures that suit the modern home.
My interior design background pointed my aesthetic toward character-driven art that has a clear focus and an emphasis on texture. My art has been a way to connect with other craftspeople for sourcing handspun, naturally dyed fibers, sustainably sourced wood, and community driven ceramics. My passion is to connect people with beautiful and attainable art.
