Collage, 8x10x.01, 2022, $200
Collage is like recycling, turning old images into something new and unique, something uninteresting or even mildly interesting into something more interesting, inspiring, weird, or grotesque. I appreciate the aesthetics of vintage advertising and style. I rework it into surreal landscapes or didactic themes. I work with analog techniques using printed paper source materials (books, magazines) and I create some collages digitally as well.
I'm a self-taught visual artist from Anchorage Alaska. I consider myself an emerging artist and my experience so far has been incredible. I've done a solo exhibition at IGCA, a contemporary art gallery in Anchorage Alaska, a group show at Collapse Gallery in Wenatchee and several First Friday shows at local venues. I've been featured in my local indie newspaper and hope to participate in some shows in the Seattle area.
