Our oceans are filled with debris such as ghost nets from the fishing industry, in which many of our endangered species become entangled. These nets are unseen on the surface, a huge drifting hazard below.

Hanging Out at ROC

Thanks to an opportunity through Hawai’i Craftsmen, it’s my turn to have art work at the Real Office Center in Chinatown Honolulu.

Two of my waterfall pieces are hanging out in the 1st Floor window:
