Announcement   The circle does not end. What you throw away gets repurposed and turned into a new and beautiful object. The next memory is born.

A focus of my approach to art is repurposing and recycling. Besides the obvious benefits to the environment, repurposing textiles, wood, metal, paper – even plastic grocery bags – allows individuals and groups to afford to create art. In the Mississippi Delta, the poorest region of the poorest state in the United States, lack of money for materials should not be a stumbling block to artistic expression. By utilizing recycled items, by repurposing materials, I make art available to anyone, regardless of their socio-economic status. I believe art is not only a “connector” for educational endeavors but also a conduit for human and community relationships. This shop is a in a constant state of flux, every week new ideas are morphed into signs, skirts, cards and hoodie tops. Keep checking it out. I change it up all the time.

It is perfect. I adore it. I hesitated to open before the anniversary of my lover because the package is great. But after two days , I broke down and I opened it ... and it 's great. Exactly what I was looking for. It arrived 10 days after your shipment , so quickly. A big thank-you. I look forward to the offer. GHislaine Pour les acheteurs francophone: Il est parfait. Je l'adore. J'ai hésité à l'ouvrir avant l'anniversaire de mon amoureux car le paquet est chouette. Mais au bout de 2 jours , j'ai craqué et je l'ai ouvert...et il est génial. Tout à fait ce que je cherchais. Il est arrivé 10 jours après votre envoi , donc rapidement. Un grand merci. J'ai hâte de l'offrir. Bonne journée.GHislaine

The artwork is wonderful, and my husband loves it! Thanks so much for getting it out to us so quickly. It was wrapped so beautifully and packaged so well, that I didn't need to to touch it before giving it to him. Thank you!

My focus and approach to art is repurposing and recycling. I teach this philosophy in all my community classes too. Besides the obvious benefits to the environment, repurposing textiles, wood, metal, paper – even plastic grocery bags – this allows individuals and groups to afford to create art. Where I live in the Mississippi Delta, the poorest region of the poorest state in the United States, lack of money for materials should not be a stumbling block to artistic expression. By utilizing recycled items, by repurposing materials, I makes art available to anyone, regardless of their socio-economic status. I believes art is not only a “connector” for educational endeavors but also a conduit for human and community relationships.
