A Space of My Own


I have been thinking about doing this for so long, and now, almost by accident I have a space to talk about plastic. See, I work with the stuff and have now for over 14 years. That's a large chunk of my life. I make things from a craft material called Friendly Plastic, also known as Fun Plastic in some places, plus I like to use acrylic paint, another plastic of sorts, and I have dabbled in shrink plastic too. I just love the stuff. But it's hard to get others to think of this material as Art. So this year I am going to try to create some kind of Real Art Piece with this low class material and then I am going to try to get some press. There aren't many of us out there doing friendly plastic, especially here in Canada, where as far as I know you haven't been able to get the stuff in a store for years now.

I'm a lonely friendly plastic artist.
