2019 CHERRIA CHAVIES ARTIST STATEMENT REPURPOSE WITH PURPOSE
I have always been interested in art of one kind or another. I was working g as a preschool teacher and I found that I had a creative flare. I liked it, I liked it a lot. I had done so much art with kids, then I said I can do art for me. When I saw how furniture and other things were just thrown on the streets, I began thinking about how those things could be repurposed. That would be a monumental task, but not on a smaller scale. I discovered that people were already repurposing and that made me excited. Their recreations were inspiring, so I decided to join them!!
