"Ever since I was a kid, my grandfather has been giving me magazines. Every Sunday after church, my family would go eat lunch with my grandparents. My sister and I were just kids and got very bored at the table.

Noticing this, my sweet Pops gave my sister and me a magazine or two to fill our time. They usually consisted of Birds and Blooms, Audubon and, my personal favorite, National Geographic.

My sister and I collected these for years until, one day, I decided to make use of them instead of letting them sit in the back of my closet for years.

Then the magic began!

Ever since then, I have been creating these mosaic pieces with my Pops in mind. I call them Magazine Mosaics."
