This Art of characters, landforms, and symbolic abstracts are sculpted through layered paper materials bonded with papier-mache. This then enables impactful larger-scale works that are lightweight and wall-friendly. A closer look will reveal the details of textures created using aggressively layered brushstrokes.

The tactile nature of creating with traditional methods displays an appreciation for simplicity expressed in the materials used: paper cardboard, glue, and paint. Creativity often emerges with the limitations within a given task.

BIO

Growing up in rural Wisconsin in the 80s, I always had access to cardboard and paint. So I made city models and creature costumes based on pop culture.

In 2001 I earned a degree in Visual Communications and 3D Animation. This allowed me to work over the last 20 years as a graphic designer and illustrator.  

In 2010, I re-discovered my childhood interest in the art of cardboard sculpture. Since then I’ve made over 100 unique artworks of abstract characters, animals, and landforms. 

Wisconsin has always been home to my wife Gena and I with our four children. There is always a pile of cardboard in my home studio.
