I feel honored to have my art work selected for a collaborative fashion design project. Sheldyn Nicholson and Kennesha White used my piece to design dresses for the Columbus College of Art & Design senior fashion show. CCAD has a world-class fashion program, and I am excited to have my work be part of it.
In 2015, I found an old kitchen counter top on the sidewalk, waiting to be taken to the dumpster. I salvaged it, and used it as a canvas. I painted with acrylic, discarded plastic for texture, and a small mat woven with discarded plastic bags. I was exploring merging paint with plastic, as well as ways of creating texture without using traditional mediums.
A big shout out to these creative designers Sheldyn Nicholson and Kennesha White, for such a wonderful creation and enhancing the beauty of discarded materials. Thank you fashion department of CCAD for this great opportunity.
