More from the Entangled and Ingested series

Sooty Tern, 29 x 26.5 inches
Stellar Sea Lion, 67.5 x 70 inches

Kemps Ridley Sea Turtle, 33.5 x 38 inches

White faced storm petrel, 22.5 x 19 inches
Dusky Shark (not a great photo– it’s too big for my studio!) 15 feet 3 inches x 5 feet 2 inches

Throughout the summer, I have continued to create these portraits of animals harmed by plastic pollution. Each is hand sewn from film plastics– film plastics are impossible or difficult to recycle where I live.

I’ve completed 14 of the 46 species on my list (informed by the work of researcher David Laist, 1997).

Here are just a few more.

To really follow the progress of the project, check out my TikTok and Instagram.
