Lisa Bryant

Board Secretary

     Lisa has worked in the book publishing industry in Boulder for the past sixteen years and is excited about returning to the arts community.  She has taught art in the Bay Area for many years and is eager to apply her skills to art education using recycled materials from the community.  She also wants to support a much needed outlet for creative reuse;

     Denise is a weaver and bead artist specializing in 2 and 3D glass seed bead work utilizing found objects. She is one of just a few women in the U.S. who restore antique beadwork for the public. She is a long-time member of the Handweavers Guild of Boulder and the Boulder County Arts Alliance.

     After watching the window treatment company where her husband works routinely struggle with conscientious ways to dispose of high-end surplus, Denise founded Art Parts in 2011 as a common sense solution to multiple community issues. She is fascinated by peoples' relationships with their stuff, and passionate about making Art Parts a valuable creative resource for everyone.

     Bob is a semi-retired CPA  with substantial auditing, accounting, treasury and tax experience during his professional career.  During the past 10 years, Bob has assisted various non-profit organizations with their accounting, tax, and planning functions.  He enjoys assisting non-profit organizations in their missions to enhance the quality and availability of community resources to the benefit of all citizens as well as the protection of our environment.

     Buffy is an architect, a landscape architect, an artist, and a community builder.  These various disciplines allow her to work well in collaborative settings.  She has an eye for the details of a project and how things go together.  She is very eco-minded, caring not just for the environment but how we as a community live within that environment as a symbiotic whole.

Mission Statement

To inspire and promote creativity, resource conservation,

and community engagement through reuse.

Art Parts

is a non-profit creative reuse center founded in 2011 to serve Boulder County, CO. We accept donated, reusable industry surplus, and other art/craft/school/resourceful materials from businesses and individuals, to resell at low cost to the public.

     Jennifer brings over 25 years of experience in the environmental science field working in the private and public sectors. She is thrilled to find an organization in Boulder that can benefit from both her science and business skills as well as her many creative talents. Jennifer is enjoying working collaboratively with the fabulous Art Parts' volunteers who are making the big dreams of this non-profit creative reuse center possible!
