Set in the mountains of LaFollette, Tennessee, each work is a theatrical production around the sudden event of Uncle Willy's Funeral. Dramatic color balanced with energetic brush-strokes gives life to the humorous and disturbing family of Uncle Willy. The compositions are a collage referencing early tintypes and paint by numbers, though painted in a highly stylistic manner. Each work is a exploration and experimentation of color and composition.
