Why Records?

My love for vinyl began in 2012 when I inherited my Grandma’s record collection, but did not have a record player. Instead I started painting on them for Christmas presents. After moving back to NY in 2013 I began selling painted records in local gift stores, and shortly after began teaching classes but decided to stick with records as a unique canvas! Upcycling records into paintings that now hang on a wall has been a rewarding experience. I love hearing people nostalgically discussing the record covers at the end of class as they choose one to take home with their piece. The music and song titles continue to inspire me as does the process of painting in a sustainable way, and I enjoy sharing this experience with others.  (Even if it means explaining to kids what a record is!) It’s a beautiful way to share artwork and keep this classic music alive.  ~Aimee
