  1. Wonderful! Where would you say that you draw most of your inspiration from? I really love the idea of re purposed items that come together to make art. Well done, friend!

    Also, please end me your mailing address, and I will send a postcard! My email is missyjean@netscape.net

    • Glad you liked it , hmmm did you mean where do I get the idea to turn scrap in to art ? Or take inspiration from like a person or site ? As a child I’d played with a lot of lego building blocks , where I’d mix and match materials from different sets to make separate new things .

Please share you thoughts here , Thank you .
