They come together when you can hold the photos in your hand. 

You can pass them to the person sitting across from you- hang them on the wall- stick them to the fridge- carry them in your wallet- put them in a tray on your coffee table and watch the reaction on your friends’ faces as they dig through them.

There is a visceral sensation not present when viewing photos on a phone…

Think about that.


Honored to have my art piece, “Assemblage #021” selected by Steve McKenzie of McKenzie Interior Design for his vignette for Dwell With Dignity’s Thrift Studio.

On The Cover…

… and on the newsstands now-

The fall decorating story we shot in Grand Rivers, Kentucky.

Thanks to stylist Anna Forkum for pumpkin wrangling, leaf management, and keen eye; to Assistant Art Director Lori Sturdivant at BH&G/SIM for guidance and vision (and dinner at Patti’s- we’ll tell you about if you want…and you should), and KariAnne and her family at Thistlewood Farm for allowing us into their amazing home.

But the best is yet to come…

This is #025

Since October 2016, Owen has been creating assemblages from reclaimed scrap wood gleaned from construction sites, a local custom cabinet maker, and dumpsters around Atlanta. 

At his first public exhibition in Nashville last May, nine of the original thirteen pieces sold. 

Between photo shoots and film work, he has continued to create these assemblages, recycling wood that otherwise would be hauled off to the dump. 

#025 is referred to around here as “Mariana” and was inspired by the Trench of the same name.
