tutu and tube top - found materials, trashionI’ve just posted this photo and a few other photos to my Flickr stream, so I thought I’d share it here as well. (I’m wishing for warmer weather right now, so seeing the sun and greenery in this photo makes me happy!)

The tutu is made from white Walmart shopping bags, fused together and then fashioned into a skirt that ties in the back, so it’s very adjustable.

The top is from a green mesh “corn sack” that I received from a local farm (ie, the bag that was used to transport corn). I usually pair the green tube top with the larger hoop-skirt that I made from tan Kroger bags. The necklace is made from clear plastic drink bottles. The boots…well, I haven’t started making shoes yet—but we’ll see about that!

Also, I’ve got a few exhibits to announce for the coming months:
“Wearable Art” at The Living Arts and Science Center’s Gloria Singletary Gallery, Feb 15th – April 2nd … and my Solo Show at the Anne Wright Wilson Fine Arts Gallery, Georgetown College, February 25th – April 8th.

I’m also planning to apply for several other art events going on in the Lexington area, so keep yer fingers crossed for me!
