Tin Can Sally creates whimsical, colorful, joyful birds, fish, collages, art dolls, jewelry, mobiles, tin clothing and more from printed tin containers of all shapes and sizes. She finds her tins at yard sales, flea markets, antique shops, in attics and basements. Sally can be found, quite often, with her legs dangling out of a dumpster. She is a true tin hunter/gatherer. Sally uses olive oil tins, cookie tins, spice tins, coffee tins, tea tins, candy tins, sardine tins, anchovy tins, biscuit tins, soy sauce tins, mustard tins, curry tins, ethnic food tins, popcorn tins, sewing tins and mint tins.
