Call it upcycling, recycling, or even reinvesting in the environment, my wish is to achieve the innovative coupling of art & repurposing. Thrifted fabric becomes a back story to art-on-the-wall or a functional article for every day use.

Art Pillow

Botched stitch ’n slash pieces. Muse said “chop ‘em up & stitch to a background”. An argument ensued. I chose pillow AND wall hanging.

Carpet

Problem: rolling desk chair scratches hardwood. Flat, thin carpet needed. Upholstery samples allow smooth movement. Too pretty for a carpet? Then hang on the wall.

Overlapped & stitched seams; paper-backed upholstery samples, denim backing.

Free Standing: 34.5 inches x 34.5 inches
