Your full name (first and last name)

Tess Felix

What do you do? Describe your work in art? (Visual Artist, Painter, Photogrpaher, Graphic Artist, Designer, Crafter)

I'm a visual artist. I lean towards portraiture, using garbage that is washed up onto the beach, mostly plastics, but I incorporate metals, wood and curios objects that I find on my beach combing sprees. I wash and sort the detritus by color and size. When I start a peice I fine tune the color sorting to creat a pallet. I attach the plastics to sheet metal canvases with silicone for windows and doors.

What is your goal with your art career? Reason of joining this Meetup. Provide your mission statement?

My goal is to show my work to a wider audience and to provide an oppurtunity for discussion about the uneccessary use of single use plastics and the negative impact that it's causing in the oceans. I would also like to make a living as an artist.
