Amanda Robles Design
I have been a crafter my entire life. My main focus has always been giving new life to recycled materials. In this way, I can help to save the environment by using materials that would have gone to a landfill, and turning them into useful and beautiful items to be enjoyed. I try to “awaken” these recycled objects, with an artistic twist. As a woodworker and sculptor, I tend to do more rustic wood-based home decor, wall art, and much more. I can be inspired just looking at a pile of thrown-away building materials. Frequently their rustic appearance adds a unique beauty and variance in color that cannot be found in new materials. I find real inspiration and beauty in these things and consider it an act of discovery. That is, I discover the unseen, hidden gem within the simple materials that others would consider trash.
