The Meeting Street House was created from discarded items I collected on a 5 mile stretch of Meeting Street in Charleston, SC. Items such as twisted wire, broken nails, rusted bottle caps, salvaged wood, washers and metal scraps are just a few of the forgotten items rescued and creatively reused in this mixed Media piece. By rescuing these abandoned, discarded and broken things from the streets, I am keeping these items out of the streets, landfills and waterways. I want my art to celebrate recycling as an art form and encourage others to be better stewards of our environment.
