What makes my creations different from others? I use items that people don't want anymore or would normally be tossed away Eventually theses things end up in a landfill or who knows where else. (See the related videos below.)
My main goal of reincARTnated* is to help save the community, landfills and so much more by living greener.
You have heard it before "One mans trash is another persons treasure." I believe that almost everything can be made into something beautiful and that it is just a pearl in an oyster, waiting to be discovered. Let me show you how I breath new life into otherwise defunct items.
behind reincARTnated began in January 2013. I had been injured at work and eventually lost my long term stable job, and at the same time my son was graduating from high school and moving out. My whole adult life had revolved around him, and that life, was changing drastically at an accelerated speed. I realized I was lost and didn't know who I was, and that if I wanted to be happy I needed to find myself.
So I did what many thought to be crazy, I packed up my car with camping/hiking gear and I went on a 40 day solo journey across
4 states. In Albuquerque, New Mexico at Petroglyph National Park I was drawn to a specific image. This image was an ancient drawing of a spiral.....it was as if it was calling my name. Back at the visitor center I was told that the Indians used that drawing to symbolize rebirth. At that moment it all made sense; this was my new life and I was being given a chance to reincarnate myself. I changed the name to incorporate the word art since that has always been my passion; hence: reincARTnated..
