Dara : "My focus is plastic pollution and I have created a series of large watercolor paintings on the crisis and its affects on humans and animals.
This painting of a baby sleeping peacefully, positioned in the center of the picture, seagulls fly above her and the beach below is polluted with plastic debris that came in with the tide.
The inside of her stomach and her ribs are exposed, overflowing with plastic bottles, caps, barbie doll heads and other plastic debris.
This painting is about plastic bits found in the bellies of Albatross carcasses that nest in remote bird colonies hundreds of miles off the North Pacific coast. All are victims of human over-consumption and waste."
