About six weeks ago I asked readers to Share feedback through a short survey.
Thank you to those who took the time to respond to the three questions!
Turns out survey responders value art. Yay!
Three out of four readers see art as part of a balanced life. So good!
When choosing to do something special for herself, three out of four readers indicate they tend their soul[s] with a cultural experience such as music, film, theater, a good book. Love it!!
How would you feel about adding art to your balanced life that not only tends your soul, but also reflects a deep interest in humor, community, AND the environment?
That is what 2nd Chance Designs is all about.
I rescue experienced, secondhand things. So they don’t end up in the trash.
I re-envision furniture and occasionally denim clothing.
I up-cycle paper like book pages, kitchen labels, old maps or sheet music.
I revive functional pieces with heaps of funky colors and designs transforming common items into works of art. Only non-toxic, water-based paints and sealing products find their way into my art.
I work with a happy heart doing work I love. (No sweatshop. No slave wages.) My work expresses my joy. Captured in dancing colors and winsome designs, this joy resides in every finished piece: part of the magic that accompanies a 2nd Chance Design to a new home.
