American Bully Dog

Turner, Oregon

Eric and Melinda Dalke live in a small town in Oregon. They share their lives with two dogs, cats, tropical fish and one spoiled bird. They share a passion for animals and art. They love bird watching, driving around the Northwest and life. Eric is a photographer and enjoys woodworking and mixed media art. Melinda is a Fine artist who dabbles in many mediums: watercolor, acrylics, polymer clay and mixed media art. Together they make polymer clay mixed media mosaics using reclaimed/recycled frames, jewelry, found objects and beads. They love life, animals and art; they try to show this through their artwork.

“We were both excited to see a reclaim/recycle project to join in on. We make art mosaics using reclaimed frames, jewelry and beads, so this project was right up our alley. We think using reclaimed and recycled objects in art is a wonderful way to recycle. We thought the hubcaps were very unique and made a large statement that anything can be recycled!”Eric And Melinda Dalke
