I make collage art the old-fashioned way: with paper, scissors and glue. As a lifelong collector of books and magazines, I love finding a new purpose for old images. So while I edit words for my job as a journalist, I edit images as an analog artist. Many of my pieces do not have one inherent meaning, but they are often guided by the tension between the beauty and the agony of life. Ultimately, I just aspire to make pretty pictures — with a point of view.
