“Plastic pollution is like a growing monster that will attack all life forms including us. Twenty-two million pounds of plastic enter the Great Lakes every year. Massive amounts collect on shores and the rest forming huge islands of garbage in all the earth’s oceans. This eventually becomes microplastic which is ingested by sea life. We may be eating and drinking tiny plastic pieces too small to see. For over a decade I have made art celebrating life supporting qualities of our planet waters. Mylar is smooth, lightweight and semitransparent. I love working on it. It is also made of plastic.”
