Juvenilia, Self Portrait with Gum Wrappers, c. 2005

This piece is interesting because I think it sparked my love of using upcycled materials in my art. I have always been a hoarder when it comes to craft supplies, and when you consider almost anything to be a "Craft Supply" you need a lot of space to store it all!
So, I used to chew a lot of gum, but would only buy the kind that came in sticks, so I could save the wrappers. One day inspiration struck and I decided to try a simple self portrait collage. Now I'm looking at it again after so long, I feel the need to make more of these!
