Thanks for stopping by my shop!
I'm Heidi and have been making art using post-consumer waste for about 10 years. It all started with an interest in colourful and creative package design. I started realizing how much well designed packaging gets thrown out every day and was inspired to find better uses for it. I started collecting and creating with different types of post-consumer waste and recycled materials that I came across in my travels.
My goal is to create clean and modern upcycled items that look nothing like the scraps they once were. Upcycling is different than recycling because it is taking a raw discarded material and making it into something of higher value. Recycling takes a discarded material and puts it through a process (melting, fusing, mushing into pulp, etc) before making it into something new.
I am a total…
