Fishing nets.

I buy retired authentic nylon commercial fishing nets for my work. Most nets get approximately 2 years of use before they lose integrity from being torn and repaired too many times.

I find the flexibility of the grid, fascinating. Everytime I look, i see something different in the lines.

New Work: Bottle Cap Pearls

This work is inspired by my self directed homeschool virtual artist residency with NOW Friends in Nairobi Kenya. Last summer when Covid preventing me from traveling to Nairobi, I drilled holes in thousands of bottle caps instead.

And researched Kenyan artists online and watched tons of YT videos about Masai Mura to make this Pinterest board which has lead to this new body of work using recycled bottle caps.
