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!
