Image Statement: New to my process was embellishing the tapestry with numerous cut up credit cards, and affinity cards. This piece reflects my concerns about all the waste in our oceans; and the credit cards a commentary on the ongoing excessive, material consumption. The plastic pollution is itself a serious concern for the biological life in our oceans.
