About dadadreams

I am a self-taught paper and scissors collage artist. I create all of my original collages using the traditional method in which everything is cut and pasted by hand. I salvage images from damaged books and magazines. It's my way of preserving and giving a second life to unique bits of pop culture history that would otherwise be discarded and forgotten.

My collages can be found in the suites on the cruise ship TUI Mein Shiff 4. They were also part of the Reese's Puffs Cereal mashup project. They have been published in Cosmetic Surgery: A Feminist Primer, Tubby Book, Houstonia Magazine, Volup2, and Plateform Magazine. They were also featured on Archie McPhee's Geyser of Awesome.

My collages have been exhibited in variety of shows including a solo show at The Grind in Chicago, IL. Group shows include the "Centenary of Collage" exhibition at Arison Gallery in Manchester, UK; the "Odditorium Detroit" exhibition at District VII Gallery in Detroit, MI; "The Postal Collage Project" in San Francisco and Berkeley, CA; Ginger Fox Gallery in Dallas, TX; Dormalou Project in Houston, TX; the Danforth Gallery in Livingston, MT; the Texas Association of Interior Designers' Art Show in Houston, TX; and "Tiny Show" and "Nope Show" at Texas Art Asylum in Houston, TX.
