I create original design hooked art. I begin with a design concept, create a series of studies and then a final drawing. I transfer the drawn design to monks cloth and select my color palette. After dying my wool based on the color pallette I have chosen, I strip the wool and hook the project. I use both new and recycled wool, and sometimes incorporate other fibers and materials into the piece, and finish my works with a cross stitched label. My hooked works are most often wall hangings but can be rugs, pillows and worked into other items such as purses or clothing. My work is available at Chapter Two in Corea where my studio is located, and I create a hooked rug based on the stone bridges of the Acadia National Park carriage trails which I donate to the Friends of Acadia annual gala auction. My work has appeared in two rug hooking books, Rug Hooking magazine and will be on display in an joint U.S. / Japan exhibition.
