Recent Work

This is the first piece in a new collection of collages I'm working on titled the "Paper Trail" series.  It's one of the more biographical projects I've done (usually I'm all Color! Composition! Color! Abstraction! Color!) but this is more of a self portrait as told through the pieces of paper that I collect and which happen to find me.  Airline boarding passes, junk mail, parking receipts... my paper trail!  I'm pretty excited about this series, it's an idea that I started in college but felt was too simple or obvious at the time.  Silly kid!  Sometimes the best art ideas are the ones that come easily.

Stay tuned for more works from this series.  Prints of Paper Trail I are available for purchase in my Society6 shop.

I love this! I can't stop examining it. I can't wait to see more from this series!

And I couldn't agree more-- sometimes the simplest ideas are the most brilliant.

Simple and brilliant= I wish I'd thought of that :)
