#perthbeacheco


Over recent months, we have had the absolute pleasure of working with Virginia Casey. Virginia has a passion for producing eco art. She painstakingly collects rubbish off the beach, in the form of plastic and rope and brings them in to be framed. We are now working on her latest piece which consists of pieces of driftwood she has found - can't wait to see the finished product. 


About Virginia

Her environmental art started last year (2017). While producing and showing this art, she is able to bring awareness of what and how much washes ashore on the Perth beaches. She would like to see this style of art popular in interior magazines and the like, making people aware of this new style and resulting in people cleaning up the beaches to make their own art.

Virginia could see huge benefits in it becoming popular in countries where they have too much rubbish. The locals, making the art and then in turn selling it back to the tourists!
