14 years, over 40 collages, over 100 art fairs, and still loving every minute.
Why do I make collages of places? Because we’re shaped by places. Diners, drive-ins, neighborhood markets, they’re all a part of our history. The memories and stories that we’ve attached to these places is what motivates me to document them. Because of that, I don’t use stock photos to create my artwork. While it takes a lot longer and prevents me from creating a huge catalog of images, traveling to take the photographs for a collage teaches me more about the country I live in and pays respects to your memories and stories.
It’s important to me that my artwork is not just tourist spots that I research on the internet, but places that you truly love.
If you see beauty in my artwork, I believe that to be the result of the beauty of our history and of your stories.
