Kitchen Scrap Art

I’ve been reflecting on the artwork I’ve done over the past year, especially during the pandemic. During the initial “shelter in place” order, when we had to stay in our homes, I challenged myself to keep making art. I looked around and thought, what could I make from what I already have in my home? In what ways has my life changed? I was cooking all the time and I came up with the idea for a book made from kitchen scraps. The pages are made from paper grocery bags, and some are wax paper with onion skins and egg shells. I used coffee filters, tea bags, napkins, chocolate wrappers, and fruit stickers. It was quick, fun, and messy!
