About me:

I’m a Chicago artist with roots in Oak Park and Englewood. I began working with collage while stationed with the Air Force in Turkey in the early 1990s. I’ve lived on the South Side of Chicago for many years, working on a garden I reclaimed from a once rubble-filled lot.

The collages are made from magazine paper and built on paper grocery bags.  My work is a politicized response to the world around me. I use images and words from magazines, ephemeral cultural artifacts, to re-imagine, reshape, and re-contexualize signs, shapes, and signals pulled from current events, reading, and ancient and medieval art.

My work is now showing at…

  • Lulu’s Local Eatery, 3201 South Grand Blvd, Tower Grove South, St Louis
  • Z&H, 1323 East 57th Street, Hyde Park, Chicago
