urbanartifaks' Shop Announcement

I LOVE making new items from old things!! Repurposing, giving new life; NOT filling our overflowing landfills...It's like the ultimate creativity!

Being able to see past the obvious and finding the hidden potential. Isn't that what life is about? We are to see beyond the surface with each other, finding people's hidden potential as well...just as God has seen past our broken surface to see the gem that is within each of us.

What started as a reaction against the never-ending vandalism of my home has now become an exciting and creative avenue of upcycled art for me. I love repurposing items into something completely different and useful. I look at everything with new eyes, no matter how old or used. This is a good thing--or bad, depending on your point of view-its hard not to collect everything i see as 'art supplies' now.

After 6 years of living in that 'war zone', I have relocated. My studio is currently in transition as I try to condense an entire house into just a garage and storage unit of my new residence while searching for a separate studio location...its been a year now and just maybe......I might have the answer to all my space nightmares! (Of course, it comes just AFTER I gave away a lot of the 'treasures' I'd accumulated....but that's ok- i didn't throw them away, just passed them on to another creative soul!)
