“With the use of imagination we can take the discards of the past and give them new life, transforming them into things of beauty.” Instead of depleting all our natural resources we should look for ways to reuse the materials we already have. Recycling in all forms, art included is a way to do just that. As a designer, the challenge is to utilize recyclable items that will lend them to today’s fashion. I find this both challenging and inspiring.” – Jessica Lee
