Artist Statement:

"An artist's job is to challenge, provoke and immortalize the age they live in. This is the age of information overload. It enters our psyches through mailboxes - outside your door, or on your electronic devices. We’re never far from another sales pitch, another come on, another buzz word, another overwrought image. I've developed a technique that not only reflects that assault, but is created expressly from the very advertisements and messages received. The portraits are the transformation of images seen into a collection of words and images, re-imagined and rearranged to be re-seen anew.

If a picture is worth a thousand words... these are made from thousands more: junk mail, advertisements, marketing materials, packaging...all upcycled using eco-friendly materials into green fine art.

My work reflects society's obsession with beauty in advertising. My junk-mail mosaic portraits are a purposeful intermix of thousands of pieces -- images and text -- hand cut and manipulated to assemble a newly envisioned portrayal of beauty, utilizing materials that would otherwise go to waste."
