Creativity + Positivity
My art practice is rooted in experimental mixed media, particularly papercraft.
This interest in paper started young—my father repaired printing presses for a living, so I’ve always maintained an appreciation of paper and found beauty in what others might consider insignificant materials.
Most recently, I’ve been recycling and rehoming vintage magazines and discarded scraps and giving them new life as inspired collages and colorful displays; I also find it interesting how old periodicals can mirror our society today.
I make these collages on Twitch as TheTealAppeal, which I’ve found a lovely community of several hundred followers who I love to interact with while I make my art.
