Announcement   Welcome to Art Recycles...

Hand crafted, one-of-a-kind organizers and gifts that play on nature and childhood memories. Rich in color and full of surprises, my work is often a new variation of an old idea, and when possible, created with renewable, recycled or reused materials.

I’ll create a listing just for you! Customize and/or personalize your order; choose product, size, color, theme and text. No commitment to purchase until you see a photo of your custom order and absolutely love it!

Stop by on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ArtRecycles and "like" to follow along. Look through my albums at custom orders, I'd love to create something just for you! And find out where my next craft show is; if you are local to Bucks County, PA, I hope to see you there.

As of Spring 2012, I invited my very talented friend, Jenny Firestone, to list her hand crafted art dolls to my etsy shop. Jenny is a self taught artist who has been making hand crafted dolls from up cycled, vintage materials since she was a little girl. Please look carefully at all of the amazing details that she puts into each piece; tea stained, hand painted, highly embellished works of art. It's easy to see why Jenny say's that her dolls are made with heart, I love that it's a "green" heart.

About

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle it into ART

I grew up in Central NY and moved to Bucks County, PA in 1996. I am a wife, a mom, and an art educator who loves to create works that are decorative and functional.

Matisse's paper cuts inspire me; I create my own paper cuts into functional art that I call the "Tuck-it Board" and the "Tack-it board". The Tuck-it board is my version of the French memory board and the Tack-it board is my version of a cork board. Two great products to help you organize in style.

Environmental conservation is one of the like-minded things I share with my husband (he earns his living as an environmental consultant.) We work to be earth friendly every day, and as parents, one of our main objectives is to instill a healthy respect for the environment in our two young sons.

Often I create with recycled and reused items. I love to pulp down construction paper to create new sheets that are multi-layered and textured. I challenge myself to reuse some of those many handouts my son brings home from school in a creative way. Crayola crayon wrappers are a lot of fun to reuse too. My students know that, "Mrs. Dean can make art out of anything"- well, I try.

So for now, I am putting my BFA in ceramic arts aside and working with my first creative passion, drawing. I feel a strong connection between manipulating clay and cutting shapes from a piece of paper, it's just in a different dimension. The great thing with the paper is that it's already full of color and pattern. Oh, and it's instant; no extreme temperatures needed.
