In the spirit of one person’s effort to rid a trash dump from this land, a uniquetype of art was created and the dream of being an artist was fulfilled.
Artist Donna DiGiorgio has a passion for recyclingand repurposing what others view as trash… From trash, Donna creates one-of-a- kind pieces that people love.
Donna’s Story…My family’s lake property is a special andbeautiful place nestled on 18 acres of landjust south of Birmingham, Alabama. As asmall child, going to the lake was aboutfishing, skiing and enjoying family time. Theland is still enjoyed by my mother, my sevensiblings, our own children and their children.One day on a nature walk, I discovered a largearea of trash that had been around for years.Since that day, I have collected old bottles,metal cans, license plates, and more. Peoplealways ask, “Why are you holding on totrash?” My answer…“One day I will createsomething special.”After some time of staring at the old woodand rusted metal, I began to visualize art. Thetrash began to come to life, and DD aRt wasborn.I could not make the pieces fast enough andsoon my friends and family were encouragingme to participate in local art shows. I nowcreate custom items along with my fish andowls and am thankful to have a wonderfulfollowing of fans.
