There are 11 decorative works in the series, each is 8.5 x 7 x 1.25 inches. They are perfect for more intimate and unusually shaped spaces! Inspired by my experiences while growing up. My parents and relatives are from the deep south and we would visit them each summer. Living in Chicago, many contrasts occurred between the north and my southern upbringing. Several instances of "standing out" as a young man shaped my creative life. The airing of my dirty laundry (literally sometimes!) and being teased. These explorations have come to fruition through this body of evolving works called, "Southernisms."
