If a picture is worth a thousand words... these are made from thousands more.

An artist's job is to challenge, provoke and immortalize the age they live in. In 2014 we are in the age of information overload. It comes in the mailbox - the one outside your door - the one on your electronic devices. That means we can never be far from another pitch, another come on, another image...words and images invade our every moment. I've developed an art technique, a style, a series of images that not only reflect the bombardment, they are actual made FROM the very advertisements, junk mail and messages I've received. I express my vision through a variety of images - mostly portraits - and have changed the way I make art and the way I see the world around me...for good. This use of paper as mosaic tile - has been developing for many years. This site showcases most of the work I've made in the past 10 years.

I am in the process of re-hauling this site to make it work better. Please be patient. If you have a question, please send me an email.

"My work reflects society's obsession with beauty in advertising; images that bombard us daily. I re-imagine those pictures and reuse the paper in my work. My mosaics portraits are a purposeful intermix of images and text -found in advertising - on postcards, packaging, junk mail, etc. I hand cut, sort and manipulate thousands of pieces to assemble a a newly envisioned portrayal of beauty - an eclectic and highly textured portrait, utilizing materials that would otherwise go to waste."
