Growing up in a poor country has taught me to see the value in each object and the potential within. Every piece of trash could be fixed or turned into something useful... or beautiful. Fast forward a couple decades and I realized that my degree in Environmental Science was not helping me create a better world as much as would have hoped. So my attention went back to creating beautiful things from trash and reducing the environmental impact of waste one piece at a time! My hope is that my art pieces create awareness around environmental issues and make people question (and hopefully change) their daily choices.
