Star Trauth b. 1970 lives and works in Miami, Florida. She received her first degree from Antonelli University  (Marketing, Fine Art). Her practice seeks to engage the audience visually with a desire for tactile engagement. She sought to create a new art medium with environmentalism in mind, using waste paper and plastic and converting it to a flat pliable textile. She hand molds and flame sculpts each piece, miniature original works in their own right, then melds them as sculpture, assemblage, or wall hanging.
