To upcycle and recycle by using vintage or discarded items in my work.

More about me

My real name is Cindy Fahnestock-Schafer. I'm a mixed media artist who specializes in assemblage and altered art. Recycling is very important to me. I use 99% discarded, recycled, trash, vintage, or found objects in my art. (Except the 1% glue it's all upcycled)

I'm also a freelance journalist and author of a children's fantasy novel. I live in Baltimore most of the time, but also in Danforth, Maine.  When I'm not working with my husband I am usually writing about Vintage Plastics, Vintage Items, Art, or Style.  I also mess around with graphics, but am far from a pro.

I'm so glad there is a society dedicated to others artists like myself. <center>
