Creating Low waste art

LOW WASTE PAINTINGS

I create artwork by only incorporating used or secondhand materials.

PHOTOGRAPHY

You will find examples of my outdoor photography in my blog.

VINTAGE EPHEMERA

Including vintage ephemera, such as photos and letters helps give artwork an ethereal quality and gives the old items new meaning.


LOW IMPACT TIPS
  • Bring reusable containers when possible
    *Before Covid, it was more accepted and appreciated than most realize
  • Avoid single-use plastic
  • Use what you have
  • Buy secondhand or borrow from friends
  • Make sure you need it before you buy it

SECONDHAND SUPPLIES
  • Use what you have, wait to throw things away. Items such as glass condiment jars are super useful on a regular basis. Think outside of your box.
  • Ask neighbors and friends when you’re looking for something
  • Garage sales or thrift stores
  • Online using Olio, Craiglist and Freecycle
  • Dumpster diving can be fun too

The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.
