Billie is a 3D Artist.

For her project A Woven Connection, Billie explored the process of spinning as a form of waste management, creating weave from waste materials. Out of the discarded items and litter that she found in her local, natural environment, Billie has created new, functional objects: a series of 3D maps of local green spaces. Using traditional craft techniques to draw attention to a current environmental concern, Billie’s work provides a positive solution to the problem of carelessly discarded waste and highlights a change in attitude that is needed in order to protect the nature that inhabits our local areas.
