Hand Woven Rugs

     
 

My Work
My earliest art training was in painting and blending colors and to this day I express myself in woven rugs whenever I am inspired by a color combination or drawn to some aspect of a geometric pattern. I see it, feel it and have to weave it. And that is why, when you see my showroom/gallery, you will be greeted by an eclectic mix of colors and shapes. Not unlike a painter who is inspired by color, pattern, and light. The range is wide and the effect is quite amazing. Rugs of all sizes and colors - from small sizes for bath mats or table runners to room size. For the floor or the wall. Designs range from simple, old-fashioned striated to checks, plaids, stripes. Rugs with stars, hearts, leaves, beads, flowers, geometric shapes like triangles, diamonds, angled squares, and on. Colors from soft breezy blues, fresh fern greens, folk art inspired primaries, Mexican inspired hot shades, milk paint colors blended to a warm patina, lichen, earth and metal tones, and of course every flower from my garden!

Plus there are many portfolios here for you to see more ideas for design and color for your custom order. Bring your swatches of upholstery fabric, paint, wallpaper, flooring, even your favorite rocks for me to match.
