Bedtime Stories & Other Art
Bedtime Stories, paper collage, 2022 Here are some new experiments in collage art. Overall, I’m satisfied with this selection, though at first, I didn’t care much for Bedtime Stories. It has, however, grown on me considerably over the past week. I hope you enjoy these. Select prints are available in my shop. I’ve also added…
The Other Side of the Rainbow & Other Art
The Other Side of the Rainbow, paper collage, 2022 Here’s a fresh batch of artwork. I discovered a mini recipe booklet for 50 classic cocktails inside of a vintage Better Homes & Gardens magazine. And the images were just too good; so, you’ll find some boozy collages in this collection (and probably in future collections,…
Cosmic & Other Art
Cosmic, paper collage, 2022 I was listening to an 80s playlist as I scanned this batch of artwork. When Billy Idol’s Eyes Without a Face started playing, it heightened the mood of these collages for me, so I thought I’d include it in this post. I recommend listening to the song as you scroll through…
Honey Baked & Other Art
Honey Baked, paper collage, 2022 Here is a new batch of artwork. Overall, I’m satisfied with these. Each of these collages takes me to a kind of nostalgic “happy place”. Please enjoy.
The Stars Are Behind You & Other Art

On the Bright Side & Other Art
On the Bright Side, paper collage, 2022 Here is a new batch of “inner landscapes”. As you can probably tell from the plethora of cacti in these pieces, I am still working with a lot of vintage Arizona Highways magazines. They’re so much fun.
Life of Objects: A Collection
Life of Objects No. 1, paper collage, 2022 I was recently gifted a copy of the periodical, The Gentlewoman, from May 1903 (many thanks to Katie from The Brass Grasshopper). It is, by far, the oldest source material I’ve worked with to date. Indeed, the paper is so flimsy that I have to remind to…
The Truth Is Silent, But Beautiful & Other Art
The Truth Is Silent, But Beautiful, paper collage, 2022 I had hoped to write a short, cohesive essay along with this post, but I’m afraid my thoughts aren’t quite organized enough for that yet. The topic: self-transcendence. What it means to perceive the everyday in the context of eternity. This is in response to Maslow’s…
Metamorphosis, paper collage, 2022 My collage practice, as you may already know, is my sanctuary. It is where I go to relax, to play, to immerse myself in surreal, fantastical worlds. But, every once in awhile, I end up creating a collage that inexplicably causes me anxiety. I like it; I don’t like it. It’s…
Wildflowers, paper collage, 2022 (three short poems, or one poem in three parts in no particular order) i. what beginning? a cup of coffee a weather report but then the silence would be too much ii. an image has certitude; a mockingbird is surer of itself than that a pair of yellow socks dangle from…
