Re-imagining popculture into fun and functional art
I am a freelance illustrator who received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). As a craft artist I challenge myself to re-imagine waste paper into fun and functional art. My work combines my original paper cut designs with recycled materials. Where the world sees an advertisement in a magazine I see a world of pattern and color to showcase the beauty of simple, everyday objects.
I’ve always loved reading – so much so that there’s even a family video at Old Faithful where I ask for the car keys so I can go get another book since I’d finished mine. I was ten years old. To this day I cherish books, all of the books I use in my pieces come from a place called The Book Thing in Baltimore – Every book and magazine in their building has been donated instead of thrown away and is free to take.
With so many genres of books and magazines at The Book Thing, you never know what you’re going to find. I really enjoy seeing how an ad in a magazine or a page from an old book changes when cut and reassembled.
Every one of my pieces is an original since I use the actual magazine or book page, this means that no one will ever own a copy or print of your piece. It’s yours and no one elses, it isn’t a numbered print or anything of the sort. And to add the cherry on top – I can even add custom text like names or dates to your piece.
Always wanted to own an original art piece?

Customizing pieces is an amazing way to make a gift even better (even if the gift is for yourself!) - I can add names and dates to pieces, change the background colors or even make a completely new design for you!
