It is my goal to create functional art from found objects, unique recycled materials, and fabricated steel. Items that reuse what others discard and give them a new life to enhance their environment rather than burden it.

Where possible I use recycled or sustainable materials such as cold steel, cast iron items, recycled wine crates and recycled wood from homes built in the early part of the 20th century. My fabrications are made by using what I see as the beauties in items that other do not. I try to allow the original items to be recognized, yet used in new ways to their original purpose.

My functional art pieces are practical items that hopefully take discarded items from the environment they were in yesterday and enhance the environment they are used in today.

Sadowski says: While finishing my Bachelors degree, I decided to take a Digital Photography course. This is where I found a new passion. This is the perfect medium for me! I have found success with my work. I have won shows, contests and even a scholarship!

Over the last year, I have been showing my work in various venues around Cleveland. It is a great feeling to see something I created on display and even better when someone feels they should spend hard earned money to own it! Times are tough and artwork isn’t a necessity- so sales mean the world to me!

I own a professional grade wide-format Epson printer with the ability of printing up to 44″ wide. I print on exhibition quality Epson canvas. All canvas prints are UV coated for extra protection. I also build the frame and stretch the canvas myself. All of my artwork is 100% my work- from start to finish. 🙂

I graduated with my Bachelors degree in May and was married in October of 2011. I also work full time as a Human Resource Generalist for a steel stamping company.

I find happiness in my beautifully chaotic world!
