Hey There Eco-Art Enthusiast!
My 2020 Eco-Art Collection
I created this jewelry-filled Eco-Art collection to inspire all to strive to do MORE (not less) when we are challenged.
After being quarantined twice and my art shows being canceled, I felt the COVID strain, like everyone else. For seven months, no work, no shows, ad no social life!. I had plenty of time on my hands.
As an Eco-Artist, I make my living in search of recycled materials to create my award-winning art.
Because I couldn’t search for recycled materials due to the pandemic, I decided to add jewelry to my recycled art. I wasn’t sure if I could work with it since it’s different from paper. But, desperate times call for desperate measures. I needed sanity!
I've collected hundreds of pounds of jewelry over the last five years.
For my COVID Art Collection, I created a mermaid, a llama, unicorn, elephant, crowns, and crosses.
But, my most prized piece is the dragon named ‘DIVOC Unleashed.’
I named him DIVOC because it spells COVID backward. Get it?
I'd love to hear what you think about this collection.
