From the "She dances" series:

Two pieces from this series were purchased by designer Kenneth Cole.

As an environmental artist, I hate to see things wasted. I believe that MOST things can be recycled, and this is proof.

This image was taken from my upcycled sculptures, digitally altered and applied to wood scraps from kitchen cabinets. To bring her to life, I attached a second piece of wood with her face on it. Next, some acrylic paint was added, and  then finished with a clear UV coating and accented with upcycled electrical arm.

About Beatrix: Head to toe; her hat is a repurposed bar spout and cardboard from fireworks, face is cast resin with burned out Christmas bulbs as hair, neck collar is a recycled glass bottle and washers, torso is a sprinkler and lawn edger blade, yarn and thread grapevine scraps with a steel wire cage, arms are remnants of a curling iron and salvaged motor parts, her tutu is mostly curly pods, acrylic shards, bottle caps and a few random found objects, and her feet are piano hammers. No need to worry though, all edges have been ground and filed.
