"I started TAPEstry because of all the positive feedback I'd been getting on the tape art I did in my suite," Michael tells Mads. "I want to give people the same kind of eye-drawing cool-factor to their own rooms that is cheap, removable, and personalized. It's very relaxing and fun for me to make these pieces and discover new things I can do with just black masking tape."
Michael, a music and psychology student, works in other media outside of TAPEstry. He does pencil drawing and tee shirt and poster design and describes himself as a "big crafter." "I've made scrapbooks, masks, hemp jewelry, centerpieces, holiday wreaths... you name it, I could probably make it," he says. He also works with LEGOs. ("One of my ongoing projects is a table in which the base is made completely out of LEGOs.")
