Star Trauth is an award-winning artist, activist, and writer. She received her degree in Fine Art(Mt St Joseph University, Ohio, USA) and continues to study related to her field.
Her practice seeks to attract the audience visually with a desire for tactile engagement. She’s sought to create new art mediums with environmentalism in mind, using waste paper and plastic, and converting it to a flat pliable textile. Star hand molds and flame sculpts each piece, miniature original works in their own right, then melds them as free-standing sculpture, assemblage, or wall hanging. Though she has created her own medium Trauth will use other forms of traditional media to achieve her vision. Her work is heavily inspired by music, experiences from her adventurous life, and currently a fierce battle with cancer. This has also led her to dabble in new media while she regains her strength.
