About Trash To Treasure
For some years now, I have been creating 'statement' sculptures, installations and mirror frames from recycled junk. I use mainly plastics - bottle caps, buttons, electrical fittings, computer parts, dissembled childrens toys and other junk. My work does not involve any welded metalwork.
Most of my pieces are a 'play on words' - e.g. A Lot of Rubbish on TV. They make people smile! I also created large pieces for public art in the City of Bath; life-sized decorated pigs in 2008 and lions in 2010.
Commissions are happily undertaken, especially where there is a link to charities. See website for gallery of pieces and contact details: www.trashtotreasure.co.uk
I am also a freelance illustrator (who still uses a pen and paintbrush).
