Ongoing since 2015

For weeks I collected 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.

My latest Pacific Coast series will be released in summer 2018, and is available for pre-order now.
