Earth Day 2018


One of my main focuses as an artist is to upcycle old forlorn items into something new. In my jewelry making, I often use old beads and chains that were donated to me, or that I've found at thrift stores and yard sales. In my cards and mixed media collages, I always use old scraps of paper that most people would throw away. I also like to use some of the bits and pieces of furniture and decor that get abandoned in old houses. (We see a lot of those in the real estate business) This is the small bar-station I made for myself out of an old suitcase and two kitchen drawers! 





 The focus for Earth Day this year is to reduce the amount of plastic that we use. Simple changes like bringing reusable bags to the grocery store, or not using straws, has a huge impact. There is a brilliant idea on Kickstarter right now, called the Final Straw! You can follow this link for more information: www.kickstarter.com/finalstraw
