Angela has always believed in “art for all” and hence helped spearhead many public art projects, community art and artist-in-residency programs wherever she went. Recycling and repurposing materials were part of her life from the beginning and was the basis for her first body of exhibited work entitled, “Undetermined Species”, a collection of coral reefs, and invented invertebrates made from recycled clothes and thrift store items. Her older work can still be viewed on www.seathingsart.com. In 2010, Angela found her life’s calling; to make Art to Save the Sea. With her creative problem-solving the non-profit Washed Ashore was born. Today over 10,000 volunteers have helped clean beaches and worked with Washed Ashore to process over 20 tons of debris into over 70 sculptures of the animals affected by plastic pollution.
