I am a self taught artist who works with lost, tossed and forgotten items that are left by the roadside, buried in an old barn, or deposited at the local scrap yard. Working with what most people would consider ‘trash’ is challenging and fulfilling. There is nothing quite like finding unique objects that have been weathered and beaten up by life and creating functional art out of it, giving it a 2nd life.
Paula’s shop ‘Paula Art’ http://www.etsy.com/shop/PaulaArt was the very first shop I ‘favorited’ when I started on Etsy a year ago. We both love junk, and I love what she does with it.
(I’m trying to get better about the spacing of the photos, but haven’t figured it out yet. MS)
