Profile Information

About Me:
I'm a professional artist and art teacher. For the past twenty years, I've encouraged people, especially kids, to reuse and recycle materials in their artwork. In 1993, I was recognized by the EPA for my work on behalf of the environment, and I received a national award for encouraging children to reuse materials to make art.

That same year, I was invited to participate in the first Kids World Conference on the Environment at the Nickelodeon Television Studios in Orlando, Florida, and I displayed my creation, Trashasaurus Rex, a giant, solid waste sculpture of a dinosaur.

Three years later, I launched The Imagination Factory, an art/reuse Web site that shows visitors how to make art from items most people throw away. Listed by the American Library Association as one of the best online resources for kids, the site has received numerous awards, and each month it is visited by thousands of people from all over the world.

Several years ago, I created and produced Deja Vu All Over Again, an art and fine craft show featuring professional artists who reuse materials. The event has become an annual affair, and over the years, dozens of artists from several states have participated in celebration of America Recycles Day.
