Got any interesting glass bottles or old costume jewelry? That’s what I’m using these days to make my art and I am always looking for interesting pieces to include in my paintings! It’s my version of recycling and it’s so satisfying to re-use these types of materials to make pretty things. I have been making art for the past six or seven years. Not only is it a creative outlet for me, but it’s also the way I raise money to donate to charitable causes. Over the years, I have donated over $15,000 to multiple charities as a result of selling my art. The majority of my donations have gone to St Jude, but I’m always exploring other ways to give back and am currently looking into charitable causes related to education.
