I love everything about rug hooking!
From the creation of a new pattern to the dyeing of the wool, making the perfect colors to execute that pattern, the placing of those colors, and even the finishing of the rug or wall hanging or pillow- it’s all exciting for me, every time! When I can help a student to achieve that same excitement, as well as a beautiful completed project, I feel as though I’ve really accomplished something special.
Graceful, curving lines in a pattern feel right to me, but color is the most important aspect of my art. Dyeing the perfect shade or intensity of a particular color and then hooking it in makes a piece come alive- it becomes my baby. It just doesn’t get any better than that!
