Susan Reu (She/Her) first learned of creative reuse programs from an article in the Sunday newspaper several years ago. After visiting The Scrap Exchange in Durham, NC, she was hooked. Two of her favorite creative reuse activities have been making business cards from cereal boxes and making quilt squares with donated fabric and trim. Collage is her favorite form of artistic expression. Susan studied journalism at the University of Georgia and technical writing at Southern Polytechnic State University. She currently works as a freelance writer and editor. She derives joy from passing donated art materials along to artists, teachers, parents, and children.
Sally Shelton partnered with Susan to start WonderRoot Creative Reuse. They hosted monthly art programs around the Atlanta area with pre-loved art supplies.
Jamie is a fiber artist, who works in the film industry and owns Fiber Parts. Jamie helped Scraplanta transition away from WonderRoot and become an independent program.
Roseanne Winn (She/Her) is originally from NYC, where she studied fine arts. Roseanne spent several decades as a software developer before relocating to Atlanta. After hearing about creative reuse, she was delighted to work with Scraplanta. Roseanne volunteers at Scraplanta's community events and in our donation processing area.
Melissa worked with the charter members to host Scraplanta's first pop-up shops with Corner Cup Coffee and Soulshine's Decatur Campus.
