The AFTER of this upcycled art is revealed on LIVE news for the Goodwill Flip Challenge
Last week was pretty much my ideal week - it was a week filled with upcycled art and talking about my upcycled art. Last Thursday started off bright and early with a media segment on our local Fox news affiliate, Fox 10, with myself, Goodwill and James Judge, the host of the upcoming Goodwill Flip Challenge.
It was also on this live media segment that the ‘after’ of one of my ReFashioned Art pieces was revealed, also for the Goodwill Flip Challenge Event that evening. Goodwill and I had shopped for two pieces to be transformed for this event three weeks in advance. One of them, shown here, was completed prior to the event (and in the comfort of my own home studio). The second piece was used for a live demo at the actual Goodwill Flip Event that evening, before a (you guessed it) live crowd.
The whole experience was a complete thrill. I do enjoy talking and of course love talking before a captive audience, but this was the first time speaking about my art, and not fashion, or food, fitness, or personal development, etc. This was a first. And it felt really good. Even considering the snafu of my gold spray paint completely not working… it all worked out perfectly. I just used more blue!
Thank you to Goodwill for the opportunities to share something I care so much about and to Syleste Rodriguez at Fox10 News for always making live TV easy and effortless!

In case you are wondering what I wore for my Fox News media segment (shown above), of course I did my best to dress on brand- artsy, but classic and not too flashy. I didn’t want to overpower the art. I wore a vintage top and boots from Goodwill and pants by upcycled luxury brand The R Collective, who I also am an ambassador for.
