About

where whimsy meets weird

I am a self-taught paper and scissors collage artist. I create all of my original collages using the traditional method in which everything is cut and pasted by hand. I salvage images from damaged books and magazines and juxtapose them to create something that's new-but-old and twisted-but-fun. It's my way of preserving and giving a second life to unique bits of pop culture history that would otherwise be discarded and forgotten.

My collages are featured in the suites on the cruise ship TUI Mein Shiff 4. They were also part of the Reese's Puffs Cereal mashup project. They have been published in Cosmetic Surgery: A Feminist Primer,Tubby Book, Houstonia Magazine, Volup2, and Plateform Magazine.

My collages have been exhibited in a solo show at The Grind in Chicago, IL and at group shows at the "Centenary of Collage" exhibition at Arison Gallery in Manchester, UK; the "Odditorium Detroit" exhibition at District VII Gallery in Detroit, MI; "The Postal Collage Project" in San Francisco and Berkeley, CA; Ginger Fox Gallery in Dallas, TX; Dormalou Project in Houston, TX; and the Danforth Gallery in Livingston, MT.

Frequently asked questions

Do you make all of your pieces?

Yes, all of my pieces are UNIQUE and ORIGINAL works of art handmade by me. Each ONE-OF-A-KIND piece is created from vintage materials. You will receive the ACTUAL work of art, not a print or photocopy.

Are your pieces framed?

In order to reduce shipping costs, my pieces are UNFRAMED. Most of my pieces will fit into standard 4x6, 5x7, or 8x10 inch frames. A few of my pieces are mounted onto ready-to-frame wood panels.

Do you charge sales tax?

I am required by law to collect 8.25% sales tax to all sales to Texas customers. This amount will be added on during checkout. This ONLY applies to Texas customers.

How quickly do you ship your items and how do you ship them?

All of my items are ready to ship. I ship them via USPS 1st Class Mail within 48 hours of receipt of payment.
