Biking is the best! But my rubber bike tubes eventually end up in the landfill, and they have to hang out for a looooong time. So pleasebikethanks is a chance to keep some of them out of the landfills, and repurpose them for something beautiful.
I've loved bicycles ever since I was small and wobbling around on training wheels, with streamers sprouting from the handlebars. These days, I love to repurpose my bike tubes after they've had an unfortunate run-in with some glass, nails, thumbtacks, or any of the other sharp things. In the last several years, my work has primarily been with X-acto knives and paper; the challenge + process of translating this three-dimensional world into positive and negative space interests me. I live in lovely Indianapolis with my husband, where I am an art therapist by day…
