Meet and Greet for Alison Lane

There are exciting changes ahead 
at Inspiration Avenue, starting with the addition 
to our team of some talented new artists . . .


Say Hello to Alison!

I'm very happy to introduce to you our newest member, Alison Lane
Alison is an assemblage artist with a wonderful talent for 
upcycling vintage treasures like photos, jewelry, 
buttons, feathers, beads, and yes, she admits it . . . sometimes what 
others would call junk . . . into stunning works of art. 

She puts them all together with her magical touch to create 
one-of-a-kind assemblage pieces. She says, 

“I feel the need to rescue items that 
nobody wants anymore and create 
something new from that.”
She's made everything from beautiful pendants and brooches 
to unique handbags and even amazing lampshades! 

I know many of you who create with 
found objects will relate to her observation, 

“I can't look at an object without thinking, 
 hmmm . . . what could I put on that!” 

 
Take a hop over to Alison's Etsy shop, Thirty Six Creek


to see some of her fresh and creative pieces. 

(The talent and desire to create runs in the family ~ 
her daughter has an Etsy shop too!) 
Alison also has pieces in a community shop that gives a portion 
of the proceeds to charity, located in her home city of Denver, Colorado.



You can see more of Alison's work on her website, where she states: 

“In my mind there is no limit to what 
you can re-use and make beautiful again. 
My mission is to raise my children with 
the concept that everything has a use, 
and if it doesn’t . . . create one!”


Join us in giving a big welcome to Alison! 
We're very proud and pleased to have her 
as a member of Inspiration Avenue! 
I hope she will enjoy being a part of the team, as well as 
be inspired by meeting our talented friends 
who take part in our weekly challenges!

Welcome, Alison!
