As long as I can remember, my a creative spirit has been driven to make something out of something else. The resourcefulness of not running to the store to buy art supplies and instead looking at what is available around me is exciting. Our simple day to day living tends to produce basic waste like junk mail, packing materials, cardboard from our boxed foods and even yard debris. I consider it all “free” supplies. Then it is just a matter of thinking “hhhmmmmm, what can I do with this.”
I love to have fun with the prospect of making a new item that is indistinguishable from its old life. When you look at a pendant made from a cereal box, you would never know. My little catch all bowls in no way resemble the packing cardboard that once surrounded wine bottles for shipping.
My creative spirit and drive will continue to create
something out of something else.
I can be found shredding paper and making clay for stationary, bowls and jewelry, collecting washed up treasures on the beach, saving downed branches and making wreaths.
