About The Studio

Sisal & Tow fabricates one-of-a-kind artworks that enhance businesses, homes and public spaces that connect and engage people. Our unique skills allow us to create, preserve, re-appropriate, reimagine, rearrange, refinish or whatever the project calls for. If you can imagine it, we can make it.

Can’t imagine it? Sisal & Tow loves a challenge. Becca and her talented collaborators can dream up and make real everything from tiny curiosities to grand environments. Our original installations transform a storefront, café, museum, or wall into a distinctive work of art that attracts attention and sparks conversation.

About Becca Barnet

Becca’s work is driven by a fascination with natural history and preservation. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Illustration, she also attended the Missouri Taxidermy Institute where she fine-tuned her special knack and patience for taxidermy repair – from cleaning to complete mount renovations. She’s put her precision and passion for replicating textures and preserving animals into the creation of an array of museum displays.
