About glossarysyndicate

Eco conscious frugal artist using unique art-making practices by hacking technology, coupled with hand-made production and designs.

Hi! I have been making art since the early 90s, and have exhibited and sold artwork and other useful things at museums, galleries, public spaces, in shops and online. It is important that art and thoughtfully designed things enrich our lives, create dialog and strengthen community; I hope you think so, too.

Glossary Syndicate is based on sustainable and eco-friendly art practices such as recycling, up-cycling, no/low inventory, low end-waste and using post-consumer waste, papers, junk mail and trash.

Each collage is handmade using design and art magazines and high quality water color paper. The notebooks are printed, bound and shipped from the U.S. by print-on-demand companies that make things only when they are purchased, which supports low inventory, equitable employment, and offers me a healthy balance between creating and selling. California/USA production ensures a semi-low-carbon footprint for west coast/US customers.

More importantly, these things are made for you - dear viewer and reader - as tools, relics and collections for a meaningful life. Enjoy!
