About the Artist
Janet Bernson, Trashformation artist, author and educator, has, for over thirty five years, been using her love for creative expression and our environment as complementary tools for making positive personal & global change, by creating thought provoking art. She combines story and visual art. "There is no shit, it's just compost. Everything can be transformed...the physical, the mental, the intellectual, the energetic. This form of art shifts our perspective"
Making art with trash is both a personal and political experience. I create because I have to. I'm saying...Let's see if my work will, in some way, help you transform your awareness. I've been an environmentalist for an awful long time. I demand viewers to take some sort of action. I don't want you to admire it as much as I want you to think seriously about what you are doing to make our world better. I'm thinking of all who will come after I am gone. What can we do NOW to fix this mess?
