There is great satisfaction in transforming one material, having one purpose, into something entirely different.
In this new body of work I wanted to create ‘beauty shots’ with a twist. Instead of going the traditional route and using designer accessories and head wraps. I chose instead to make accessories out of materials that people normally discard or toss out as trash. I wanted to make the statement that with a little creativity, ingenuity and a different point of view “The possibilities are endless”. So I used black garbage bags, brown paper bags, plastic shopping bags, foil, brown packing paper, twine, wire, and old ball chains to make my accessories and head pieces for my Eco-Goddesses ; ) I have always enjoyed the challenge of repurposing and transforming discarded materials – and actually have a site dedicated to my recycled work.
