Ongoing since 2015

The baskets begin as ghost nets: fishing rope washed ashore on the beaches of Maine, Oregon, and Kauai. Cleaned, unraveled, and restitched, the colorful rope becomes a collection of unique baskets accented with local stones and other treasures. The color and condition of each unique piece of rope serves as an artist's palette - from freshly cut potwarp lines at local fisheries, to wild and eroded flotsam weathered by months or years at sea.

2019
Interactive community installations scheduled for May and October in Portland, OR! Join me to create artwork with 600+ pounds of recycled fishing rope.
