I create Postage Stamp Collage Art out of postage stamps from countries all over the world. I like the fact that I have been able to breathe new life into stamps that are usually thrown out or placed in albums never to be seen again.
The majority of my stamps come from people that have collections that was handed down to them and they don't know what to do with. I provide that outlet, to make something beautiful out of them. Also the white background of my artwork comes from the materials that airplane walls are made from that I picked up at a surplus sale. It has an interesting texture to it. To me that is the ultimate in recycling. Taking something that had one purpose; mail/travel and creating something else with a different purpose; art/beauty.
