Local Artist Turns Recycled Glass into Treasure
When Nicole Roberson attended Minooka Community High School, she won a contest and was thrilled to have her black and white drawing titled "Dream World" published on a website. She also was presented an academic achievement award from officials in the school's art program. And she worked on the Minooka Senior Class mural for 2002.
She turns old junk into and new furniture art and mosaics that draw regular responses from customers that run along the lines of, “Wow, I can’t believe you did that.”
Roberson sells her works as fast as she produces them in the basement of her mother’s home off Chipwood Drive—but not in a storefront, rather online via etsy.com or through her Facebook page: Nicole Marie Artistry.
