My work is influenced by time spent on the beach and the litter I have found there.

"Tangled" is an accumulation of all the fishing ropes and lines I have collected on Hell's Mouth beach in North Wales. I have predominantly been finding ways to use them, turning many into bracelets and dog leads. However, I wanted to display them in a way that represents their harmful presence in the ocean, where they drift for miles. Entrapment of marine life by these materials is currently threatening our oceans and can kill or injure anything from the smallest fish to the largest whales. 

If you would like to purchase any of the items I make from ropes, please get in touch.
