About this Exhibitor / Bio: 

I have an endless fascination with newspaper because I love to push the boundaries of it's text, color and content. For example, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today have very different fonts. I love to juxtapose them to create wonderful rich textural patterns. I use Expired Coupons because they contain bold, bright and powerful colors. Their UPC Bar Codes are reminiscent of the linear patterns found in African Kente cloth. I strive to bring out these aesthetic strengths to create jewelry which is equally interesting both on and off the body. I truly believe the ordinary (such as newspaper) can be extraordinary.
