I make sculpture from beach trash. I collect on the eastern shores of San Francisco Bay near my home in Berkeley. 99% of the material in my work is man-made, mostly plastic. The sheer volume of junk found on beaches or dumped nearby astonishes and disheartens me, but I have found a creative re-use for it. Enjoy my assemblages.
