I am a gatherer of the used, broken and forgotten treasures. My medium is Assemblage/ Mixed Media. The process of gathering materials and repurposing them into something meaningful and beautiful gives me great pleasure. Recycling of everyday items that I use has been an interest of mine since the late 70's. This project is called the Sustainable Souls Project. In 2017 my art friend, Tina Walker @adogslife13, started a year long online project. Artists from across the country posted their artistic interpretations of each month's theme. My pieces are about the problems our planet faces, and some solutions. 2017 was my first as an artist at Art Prize. In 2018 I showed my assemblage series, The Sustainable Souls project, at Palatte Coffee and Arts. The pieces are entitled: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Social Equality, Melting Polar Ice Caps, Bees Importance in Sustainability Fossil Fuels and Oil Spills, Hurricanes, Alternative Energy, Protecting Our Water, Fashion Industry Production As Second Largest Polluter, Mother Earth, Take Care Of Our Home, Trees And Green Spaces, The Chocolate Industry and Deforestation.
