Sand Hill Crane
I primarily am a tattoo artist, so my goal with my art is to help people feel at home in their bodies.
How has nature been a source of inspiration for you?
I think birds, flowers, and fish in particular have such beautiful structures. As a tattoo artist, I enjoy the process of translating this beauty to skin.
Tell us about your most memorable bird experience.
In 2013 I spent my summer costume raising Mississippi Sand Hill Cranes in a New Orleans Swamp.
