I love trash! here are examples of Mandy's Trashformation Art or "One mans trash is another woman's treasure!"
It all started on the streets of St. Augustine. Attracted by shiny objects, construction dumpsters, litter, papers, dried flowers and other free art supplies including computer parts I recycle from where I work such as memory sticks and processors, misc. metals and also junk jewelry parts, beads and stuff people give me or I find at the local Trinity Thrift Store I started incorporating found objects into my art.
I really like the idea of repurposing and decorating these objects and giving them a new use. This opens up a dialog about recycling and might help the viewer think more creatively and also you don't have to spend a lot of money to make art when you find free art supplies!
