One of the people who has took some of my FREE beach trash, was a middle school teacher named Catherine. It turns out that Catherine is a bit of an artist herself. This is a plastic bag installation that was done in the Solana Beach Coaster Train Station. Believe it or not, these artistic doilies are made with plastic grocery bags.
It turns out that Catherine has both an Etsy site of which she makes plarn bags. Plarn is plastic yarn, and her creations are perfect gifts. With the holidays coming up and you have to bring the bottle of wine, why not bring it in a plarn bag instead of paper?
That is not all! As a Filipino- Chinese, she launched a website that integrated the Filipino- American culture. Using Found objects, she created a series of artistic works with dirt, textiles, paper and anchovies.
With a background in the Arts, Catherine has had numerous showings in primarily California with her found objects. You can see more at:
