Rug Hooking

There are so many beautiful styles and techniques for hooked rugs and mats. I am especially drawn to the work and style of Canadian artist Deanne Fitzpatrick and love the variety of wool fabrics, yarns, and fibers that are used in her beautiful work. I am also influenced by the amazing work of New York artist Linda Friedman Schmidt for her ability to convey deep emotion as she hooks with a wide variety of fiber types found in discarded clothing. I aspire to capture their use of color and story telling ability.
