  • Salvaged Hearts was created based on the premise of taking things that had been thrown away, presumably because they weren’t beautiful… and creating something beautiful from them.

    The whole concept was that whatever money I made from these items, I would donate 10% to different charities. The inspiration for Salvaged Hearts was an experience with teens in recovery. So many of them had been “thrown away”…

    I made a collection of chairs created from American antique, 40+ year frames with fabrics left over from projects. Sometimes they’ll end up on projects. That’s what it is. Basically, something from nothing.

    The chairs were an expression of the concept that “the whole is bigger than the sum of its parts”.

    These pieces are one-of-a-kind. Just like the kids.
