Each rug begins as a sketch, first in a sketchbook and then on sturdy backing material stretched tight across a vertical frame. Then I combine 2 and 3 ply wools made specifically for carpets and rugs, laying in each color one at a time. I mix up to four balls of yarn together in the tufter, resulting in a very complex color combination. This can lead to some unexpected "wild cards", and I can still be surprised by what happens to a rug when the final color goes in. No two rugs are identical, although I may repeat designs for a client. I love to work with people on special projects and see their house if possible. I’m always happiest when I’m working on something new.

Looking at art has been described as “taking the eye for a walk”. When it comes to handmade rugs, the promenade can be physical as well as metaphoric.
