Hi, my name is Red. I'm originally from a small town in South Carolina. I grew up in a little house on a lake and trained horses for ten years until it was time to fully focus on university. I studied Painting and photography at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, and graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. After university, I travelled and worked as a barista until I was offered an apprenticeship by my friend and mentor, Bryan Spencer.
These days I can be found tattooing in Asheville, NC at Lifted Veil. Though I work in a variety of styles, my work has largely been described as illustrative.
When I'm not tattooing, I can be found painting, making pottery, printmaking, and crafting goods from my farm in South Carolina's Dark Corner. My online shop will be coming soon, and I occasionally work craft fairs and maker's markets. To find updates on where I will be selling goods, keep an eye on instagram.
For fun, I enjoy bike rides, hiking, rock climbing, rainy/foggy weather, reading, making photographs, drinking coffee, and gardening.
