Greetings, and welcome to Cassandra Tondro Green Art! If you're not familiar with the term, green art is art that is made from natural, nontoxic, recycled, repurposed and/or sustainable materials.
Because of my love of nature and my concern about the environment, I have been exploring the use of natural and recycled materials in my art for many years. My abstract paintings are created using leftover house paint that would otherwise go to waste and potentially end up in a landfill. My colorful ecoprints are made by steaming leaves against paper. No inks, dyes or paints are used -- just the colors from the plants themselves.
I create art to inspire and delight, and I would be honored to have you join me on this artistic journey.
