For the past fourteen years Trudi Lloyd Williams has been creating site specific art installations and sculptures on waterways; from chalk fed rivers, New Forest streams, salt marshes, urban canals, and the inshore waters of the Solent and the English Channel. Through doing so she aims to raise awareness about issues affecting water, such as pollution, flooding, global warming and plastic marine pollution.
Specialising in projects that are inspired by places and communities, particularly waterways from coastal salt- water to inland freshwater streams to urban man made canals, Trudi Lloyd Williams specialises in work that is site specific; utilising research, collaboration, community skills and design through to final installation.
Her dual interests in materials and recycling has frequently led to the design and production of new materials either utilising or incorporating recycled products that are site specific. From chalk fed rivers, New Forest streams, salt marshes, urban canals, and the inshore waters of the Solent and the English Channel, Trudi aims to raise awareness about issues affecting water, such as pollution, flooding, global warming and plastic marine pollution.
Trudi’s current project is working on an International Environmental Arts Project in Greece: \’Lefkaxit\’, raising awareness about Plastic Marine Pollution in the significantly important Wetlands on the island of Lefkada.
She is an experienced artist working individually, collaboratively and as lead artist.
Frequently, Trudi is involved in sourcing local businesses and artisans to construct and install work, building and developing local networks, leading to a cross fertilisation of ideas and minimising waste and energy. There is a particular emphasis on the sculptures she creates using waste materials which are collected, reused, recycled and up cycled.
