Earth Friendly Art

Caring for the Earth in my own creative way!

Sustainably Made Art created from Found Objects.

Celebrating Ordinary, Repurposed Materials.

New Beginnings For Repurposed and Forgotten Items.

***A special note*** As our country and the world grapple with a global pandemic and a racial pandemic, no one is immune from the overwhelming sadness we are all experiencing. Today's social and racial inequities have grown too visible to ignore and we can no longer tolerate any form of racism. I am more determined than ever to do whatever it takes to heal some of this brokenness by using my time, my talents and my creative voice for a higher and greater good. Change is possible and it is time. Time to finally give all people, regardless of their race, the dignity and respect they deserve. May our compassion lead us toward a more loving existence for all mankind. May we raise each other up. May we always hold space for one another. Be well! šŸ’š Deane

Celebrating the most ordinary items

By giving ordinary items artistic relevance, I bring out the best in these things and celebrates their flaws and imperfections as their greatest features. The rusted, street worn items used are constant reminders that even the most imperfect things have value.  I hope my Art will encourage others to embrace and celebrate their own imperfections and shortcomings and see them as beautiful, unique qualities that make them who they are!

Reflections on 9/11 and 2020

Reflections on 9/11 and 2020

As I witness the overwhelming pain throughout our nation and the world right now, I observe something that I saw in the aftermath of 9/11. I notice small shimmers of light and love from people of all socioeconomic backgrounds, race and nationalities creating a movement that demands change. Change based on reconstructing old narratives and obliterating racial stereotypes. Our cultural framework must evolve to ensure the safety, belonging and acceptance of all humans. This is the glimmer of hope that's will begin to pull us through this difficult and painful period. It is possible to begin the healing process in the midst of this grief. I have faith that our humanity can move us forward.
Rejection Is Really Just A Detour, Not The End Of The Road!

Rejection Is Really Just A Detour, Not The End Of The Road!

Rejection is an unavoidable, universal experience. The key to it is how I react when it happens. If I can resolve myself to keeping the big picture in mind, I will view rejection as a resourceful accessory to discovering my true path and not let it distract me from my genuine mission.
Monday is Trash Day

Monday is Trash Day

Around here, Monday is trash day. Monday is also my internal trash day, when I tend to be hardest on myself and give myself the least amount of self love. One antidote to this negative mindset is making art. Getting paint all over my hands, feeling the rough metal and holding the street worn nails; it's a connection to these materials that pulls me out of the Monday Blues and back to a reality that is rich with blessings. My paints, paint brushes and Found Objects pull me back to a happy place where self satisfaction and self love exist, free of anxiety and self doubt.
