Do you make art out of splashtrash - plastic collected from around and in our oceans and waterways? So do I.
It started on a Caribbean vacation where I was devastated by the amount of plastic trash on the beach and in the ocean. So I started making art out of it - to try to make something positive out of something so horrific. It changed my life. I was transformed into a no-more-plastic-in the-ocean activist and advocate. I began to wonder if there were others who had a similar experience and found that there are literally hundreds of us - all around the world.
The Virtual International SplashTrash ArtExpo is an opportunity for us to share and highlight our art, activism and advocacy, as well as get to know and connect with each other.
