About

I like to call my work "art made from repurposed materials" with so many non-artists not quite understanding what repurposed means, it’s easier to say "art made from recycled materials."

In my repurposed line, I try to create unique handmade items from upcycled trash, while trying to reduce the impact of environmental waste. I create items such as luggage tags, wallets, cuffs, id lanyards, journals, etc from recycled materials such as soda bottle wrappers, beer labels, chip bags, candy wrappers and coffee packaging. (I’ve come to realize that most of my materials tend to come from items that are not considered very healthy snacks.)

I'm also a fiber artist, who hand-dyes all of the bamboo poplin and organic muslin found in the backing of my recycled art.
