Sarah J. Thornington

Artivist Sarah Jane Thornington is passionate about saving the planet and all its many creatures, including us humans. She is a local conservation artist who works with marine-debris she cleans off local beaches along with found or repurposed items; she is also a portrait photographer at The Studio by the Sea. Sarah accidentally started her marine-debris art journey over 4 years ago when she did a beach clean-up every day for a year and had to find something to do with the almost 21,000 pieces of plastic she found, cleaned, and sorted; she started creating with it all and just hasn’t stopped. Her journey is mostly all about bringing and keeping awareness on the global plastic pollution issues and starting conversations about ways to help. Follow her journey @EbbtheTide.
