I am a self-taught, 68-year-old duct tape fine artist. Fifteen years ago, I started to design ties using color duct tape. I soon started copying works from Matisse during his cut-out stage, then moved on to doing interpretations of my favorite works by Van Gogh. I have sent my works worldwide, and this has gotten my works in several permanent collections—the Vatican Art Musee, International Musee d’Art Niaf in Nice , the Smithsonian Postal Museum, and the Holocaust Museum, to name a few. My black-and-white duct tape line drawings won the Juriors Choice Award at the University of North Carolina , Ashville. I will attempt to do an image of anything that interests me. My work is always duct tape on board. It makes people smile because most have experience with the medium.
