Kaysie Logan

Each month, we feature one of the incredible staff members who help make the magic happen at ACR. This month, it’s Communications Specialist Kaysie Logan! Kaysie started out as a clerk during our last few months at the Linc, then quickly transitioned to working behind the scenes. She now does the majority of our content creation and runs our social media platforms like a champ! Read more about Kaysie below and see her tutorial for Fabric Sample Stuffies!

 

How did you find Austin Creative Reuse?

I was looking for a job post college and found the clerk position listed on a fine art work board! I couldn’t believe I’d never heard of the place before. I fell in love with the mission before I even started the job!

 

What’s your favorite part about working at ACR?

I love working for an organization that cares so much about the community that surrounds it and the environment that houses it. Throughout the whole pandemic, ACR has cared for and supported its employees, and sought to protect its customers, donors, and volunteers, as well. I’m so proud to work for this environmental organization, surrounded by conservation and unconventional creativity!

 

Are you an artist, crafter, or maker? What mediums do you work with?

All of the above, thanks to Austin Creative Reuse! Working at ACR has supercharged my creativity and opened creative doors that I didn’t even know existed. In addition to painting and drawing (what I used to know), I work often with fabric, yarn, multimedia, video, glass, and more! I’m always inspired by new and unique items that come into the center, and always learning to try new things!

 

What do you do when you’re not working at ACR?

If I’m not helping reuse dreams come true at ACR, I’m making my own dreams come true through art and movement. I love to create, watch sunsets, rollerskate, and dance! 

 

What’s the craziest thing you found in donation mountain?

I’m surprised by something I found in donation mountain almost everyday. One time I found a piece of carpet from the Watergate office, and another time I discovered someone’s entire CD collection from decades past! I went and bought a secondhand CD player that day!
