I love using found objects!

Close up of "Painful Pretty" assembled with a staple gun and glue.Wood that I find in the alley, or broken-down bookshelves. Metal sheeting off a retired food truck. Old protest flyers. Stencils on their last leg. Sketches unearthed from their books, otherwise forgotten. Layers of one life forever affected by the Chicago streets. In this post “Pretty Painful” and “Red Line.”


  1. found object pieces and the All Stars and what looks like a uniting of the two are particularly beautiful.

    1. thanks jenny! the pieces you mentioned are very much an emotional and spiritual release for me- not so literal. it has taken a while for my regular fans to warm up to them, but for me it was love from the start.
