Receipts. Ripped up floor tiles. Library due date slips. Trash? Not to Jennah Hughes who incorporates unconventional items into her art in order to make something beautiful. Hughes is a self proclaimed "hoarder" who has been collecting these types of items for as long as she can remember. She originally focused on representational art styles and realism but after her time studying art education at Upper Iowa University, she began appreciating and experimenting with abstraction. The freedom and expression of this style attracted her and soon she began to incorporate her little "souvenirs" she had spent years collecting.
