I’m a cross-functional human with work experience in both the art and science fields. With all of my art, whenever possible, I repurpose materials to lessen waste and reduce environmental impact. I create many art pieces and theater props out of found objects, thrift store finds, and discarded materials. Many unwanted objects can have a new purpose outside of the city landfill.
I also enjoy bringing art and attention to historic landmarks and underused spaces. Our cities are filled with interesting nooks and crannies that we pass by everyday, looking but not seeing. Take a closer look. Art is everywhere!
